I suppose it will be useful to make a concise introduction to the existing movements centered around Free Contents/Free X.

Although the IETF RFC documents are not completely free (allowance of derivative works is only required in the scope of the standard drafting process itself), I think it can work as a good example of essential freedoms applied to scientific/technical cooperation.
If other movements use the complete set of essential freedoms for similar purposes, we can replace the IETF with those movements. What do you think? --Antoine 01:24, 14 June 2006 (CEST)
What is free roleplaying?
Do we have a tag or something we can insert into a section like this which is empty, requesting <<please expand>> or similar?
thanks :-) --Mercury Merlin 22:45, 26 October 2006 (CEST)
- You can read some details here. Ricardo Gladwell, who founded the Free Roleplaying community, took part in this wiki at this beginning, but he seems to have lost interest.
- The "free roleplaying" section was originally created for him to fill it in, since he has best knowledge of the subject. In his absence, perhaps we can write a few words and leave a pointer to http://www.freeroleplay.org for those who want to know more.

- Section initiated, please expand and update. Some of these other sections also look a little thin on the ground, and can do with some further expansion. --Mercury Merlin 00:15, 10 November 2006 (CET)
- Obs: The link "" don't work.

Some while ago, people in the Free Art community have been asking for a metadata format to recognize works of free art.
An RDF schema was envisioned that would help tag free works of any kind (art, software, etc.). I have written a simple draft of such a schema. The aim was to establish in the technical field (markup, tools) the political importance of free contents. Since then, the project has been in deep sleep; perhaps we can revive it some day under the Free C(ontent|ulture) banner.
Creative Commons already have their own metadata, which spans non-free as well as free works; my draft tried to inherit some of its vocabulary from the CC vocabulary, so as to enable interoperability (only for free works of course).
The DOAP maintainer expressed interest in such a project, noting however: "it seemed to me to require buy-in from more parties than I felt I could achieve in DOAP alone". DOAP (Description of a Project) is a metadata format which provides machine-readable tagging with semantics similar to the information provided by SourceForge and the like. Projects like the FSF/UNESCO Free Software Directory could use DOAP to store and spread metadata.
(of course, the schema draft or even my understanding of RDF might be totally awful. I had no prior knowledge about the so-called "Semantic Web" when this project was first envisioned.)
