Creative Commons allows anyone to create a free usage license for works they author. For me right now, this includes a variety of articles posted on my Tools for the TEKS website. Up till now, I have been posting the copyright symbol on the footer of every page, with a statement that these materials could be used for educational/nonprofit purposes but that I would appreciate an email letting me know the materials are being used. Not anymore after tonight, now I have a link to the Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 1.0 license . Very cool.
The Creative Commons site also has what is most likely the best Flash animation example I have seen to date . Very cool, and very effective communication method.
And now this history is recorded for all posterity and interested netizens on my blog, isn’t technology amazing…… 🙂
