iCommons an organization seeking to promote and encourage access to knowledge, free software, open access publishing, and free culture communities around the world hosts a fund raising auction that starts today. From their website:
The iCommons Auction runs from 19 November to 14 December, 2007. This is an innovative auction of paraphernalia from some of the world's leading Internet figures. From Internet activist and Stanford Law Professor, Lawrence Lessig's coat that he wore in countries around the world that invited him to talk about free culture; to pre-prints from best-selling novelist, Cory Doctorow's forthcoming, to-be-Creative Commons-licensed novel, Little Brother; and from #13 of only 20 plush toys of Firefox Japan's mascot, Fox-keh that took the world by storm, to four of Indian intellectual property expert Lawrence Liang's favorite Bollywood films: this auction is a celebration of free culture from around the world from those who make it and build it every day. All the proceeds of the auction will go to developing and sustaining iCommons' global projects.
