New license for this blog (now CC by licensed)

Creative CommonsI just watched RIP – A Remix Manifesto at a screening at NYU and was stoked, and more importantly, realized once more how important it is to share your stuff as freely as possible. So I decided to put this blog (so far under a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share-Alike license) under the even less restrictive Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license (CC by). That means you can do with it whatever you want – no matter if it’s non-commercial or commercial – as long as the source is made clear.

Not that I produce anything as cool (or remixable) as the music shown in the film, or think that what I’m writing here is overly valuable. But if there’s anybody out there who wants to use it for anything, be my guest. As long as you reference my work, go for it.

Also, if you haven’t watched RIP, do it right now. Here’s the trailer:


After writing that, I couldn’t shake a weird mental image of writhing masses and ant-like mandibles. It’s like these horribly awkward creatures clawing at their computer screen, ecstatic that it’s all CC BY. (^_^)

Yup, the Montreal crew is everywhere ;) I’m in touch with Brett, but thanks a lot. Also, great idea, we should definitively arrange a screening. And I think I have an idea for a good opportunity…
