The Circle of Creation
The goal with this circle was to spread the knowledge, creativity and incredible creations of everyone in it. I reached out to my followers and asked for their help in searching for the new creators. The people that joined this network with no prior following. People that weren’t known celebrities, people that didn’t have thousands of followers on Twitter, and people that would have been undiscovered without this network. The results were simply amazing.The Story Behind the Circle
Of course, my intentions of this project were deeper than you may have guessed. The reason I want to share with you a circle of creative people is because of the threat that exists by the United States’ and other nations’ governments. Currently the “Stop Online Piracy Act” and “Protect IP Act” are both bouncing around in congress. There have been reports that one may have died, but regardless of those reports, this type of legislation might resurface under any
Understanding the rights and provisions of copyright is a very important thing. Understanding your rights as a commentator, an artist, or a content creator is critical. However, having our rights to fair use completely threatened and thereby extinguishing our right to free speech, is completely unacceptable.
Legislators are leaning towards their lobbyists who tell them how this type of legislation with help protect jobs and keep our economic engine running.
You and I know that is not true. You and I know that it is the individuals, the entrepreneurs, the independent artists, the garage bands, the corner stores and the family businesses that keep this world spinning, and not just in America. Don’t let any
government get in the way of our freedom to share with each other. Understand and uphold your rights for fair use and never ever
let someone tell you that you don’t have a voice.
With that said, here are a list of people that would not have otherwise been found. They would have been left undiscovered, under appreciated and widely unknown if it were not for our freedoms to communicate and share each others’ talents.
In this circle are people that build things, people that create things, people that draw things, people that ask questions, people that think outside of the box. This circle is home to people that did not have a following until their time here on this one singular network. Every person in this circle has the potential to be a success story and to have their talents shared with the world. Do not, under any circumstance, let anyone ever
alienate that right.
