To do

Page 1

right panel

  • Front cover is weird. Guy looks like he's smoking.
  • Scrap it
  • The image is too "hippie" and a turn off to some in the demographic

middle panel

  • Scrap the blank middle panel

left panel

  • Should say "FC.o needs you"
  • No check-boxes for bullet points. This makes me feel like I have to check all of these before I can join
  • Re-word bullet points
  • Scrap it?

Page 2

  • "free culture.org" -> "FreeCulture.org"

left panel

middle panel

  • Excellent overall
  • "Similar movements to Free Culture" -> "Our roots"
  • "Free Speech"
    • -> "The long, proud American tradition of exercising and defending the First Amendment. The right of citizens to freedom of expression is vital of our democracy and culture."
      • "citizens" -> "everyone"? "Everyone" is more accurate but "citizens" has a more powerful connotation.
  • "Free Software"
    • -> "Also known as open source software. The practice of creating and distributing computer software with the source code and allowing others to modify or share it."
  • "Free Culture"
    • -> "Think of Free Culture as the natural progression of these established and sucessful institutions. While the Founding Fathers of our country carved out a small section of the Constitution to authorize the creation of copyright 'to promote the progress of science and useful arts,' they surely never imagined the suffocating weight of today's copyright law. Today's free culture movement is the grassroots groundswell of support for a more rational legal climate and the use of new technology to encourage greater participation in culture."

right panel

  • too wordy
  • should be bullet points on spread of the movement
    • SCDC
    • Diebold story
    • spread of FC.o
    • where we are today
  • "FreeCulture.org, founded in 2004, today has chapters across the country, with more forming all the time:
    • Bryn Mawr College
    • University of California, Santa Cruz
    • Colby College
    • University of Evansville
    • University of Florida
    • Franklin & Marshall College
    • New York University
    • Swarthmore College"
