This project was initiated by Mike Linksvayer, VP of Creative Commons and Giorgos Cheliotis, Assistant Professor of Communications and New Media at the National University of Singapore, with support from the Social Science Research Council (Collaborative Grants in Media and Communications) and the Ford Foundation (Program on Knowledge, Creativity and Freedom). This effort builds on the research of the Participatory Media Lab of Prof. Cheliotis, initially set up at Singapore Management University, and the data collection efforts of CC. Many more have contributed thus far in one way or another, including Asheesh Laroia (CC), Nathan Kinkade (CC), Haoyu Bai (Fudan), Ankit Guglani (SMU), Clint Gono (SMU), Jackson Tan (NUS), Pratichi Joshi (NUS), Sofia Morales (NUS), Jane Gowan (Citizen Lab), Ronald Deibert (Citizen Lab) and Jonathan Zittrain (Oxford).
