Oh, hello! It’s nice to “see” you.

I was watching Enola Holmes this past weekend, when I learned about the whole suing debacle that’s happening with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s estate. Essentially, the estate is arguing that the Netflix movie (and Nancy Springer’s novels) take key elements from Doyle’s later books, namely, the fact that Sherlock “has emotions” and “respects women.” They’re suing for copyright infringement.
There’s a lot I could say about all of that. But, anyways.
This got me thinking about attribution. Leah Lockhart describes attribution as, “giving credit where credit is due throughout the process.” An interesting and, I think, essential, part of any co-design process. But what does that look like? How do we facilitate attribution well? And who decides what is safe, accurate or just? Let’s ponder.

I’d love to hear what you think? Any resources that unpack this a bit more? (Reply or find me on Twitter). Otherwise, see you all next week!
