What is labour in the contemporary media economy and how might it be paid for? What are some of the issues that arts institutions and media workers face with regards to intellectual property?

There is a lot going on in Liverpool this week and I'm abit late in checking out what's going on, in my case there is to much going on as I will get to as much as I'd like.
So lets Kick it off.
We finally see it - a year in the making but now Hack for Culture has a name it can't be sued over. It is set to set the world of arts data alight by bringing the glorious arts & cultural organisations of Liverpool together with Merseyside's Digital and Creative industries to explore and experiment with a wide variety of hidden cultural data sets.
"A data set (or dataset) is a collection of data, usually presented in tabular form. Each column represents a particular variable. Each row corresponds to a given member of the data set in question. It lists values for each of the variables, such as height and weight of an object. Each value is known as a datum. The data set may comprise data for one or more members, corresponding to the number of rows." Wikipedia - so probably wrong.
YOUR INVITED SO READ ON
I'm sure I have written about this but if not then here goes. On Friday the 18th and Saturday the 19th of November DoES Liverpool will be holding Bar Camp Liverpool in Gostins Building, Hanover Street.
If you're not familiar with the Bar Camp concept they are participant led unconferences where the talks and discussions that take place are set by the people attending - anyone can and is encouraged to run a session on any topic they want so the whole event is driven by the conversations and interactions of the people attending.
Do you have some data to share? Are you worried about the cloud? Do you know where your data is stored? Come and take part in a DropDay: an AND festival datasharing session using artist Aram Bartholl's DeadDrops 'peer to peer (ish) offline sharing system'
