Just a quick note to say that this blog and website is now published under a Creative Commons license. This means that you can do what you like with what I do here, provided that: (1) you don’t use any of it in a commercial work, or (2) you don’t modify it or create any derivative works. If you want to read the full text of what you’re allowed and not allowed to do, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the “Some Rights Reserved” button.

The reason why I have changed to this? Well, one of the reasons I’m a fan of open-source software is that most of it is “free” as in “free speech”. The internet is probably one of the best things to have ever happened to free speech – that’s both a good and a bad thing, but in general (I think) good. Copyright is getting a bit creaky, in that I think these days it’s not really doing what it was supposed to do. It’s restricting creativity rather than encouraging it, and the people who benefit it aren’t necessarily the people who deserve it. Don’t get me wrong, I think Copyright is a good thing, but perhaps it needs to be re-examined for the 21st century!

And in the next blog post, Phill will try and see if he can include any more buzzwords than he did in this one…
