Technology is changing the ways creativity is employed, distributed and shared. The rules about how culture can be used are also changing. This blog is an attempt to look at some of the issues in this revolution and provoke discussion. The three founding members of rwx are Adam Huttler, Jean Cook and Douglas McLennan. We come together not out of some sense of a common view but from a shared recognition that technological change is challenging some of our basic assumptions about what culture is and how it works. rwx is a place we’ll try to make some sense of it.
Why “rwx” as a name? The letters stand for “read, write, execute” and they refer to the permission levels for folders in the back end of a website. Each folder can have different levels of permissions determining which users can see and do what with the folder.
