The CC workshop was enlivened by the attendance of Ciaran Llachlan Leavitt, who was interjecting with so many challenging and compelling points I interrupted my presentation to ask, “who are you?” Turns out she is a writer who among many other things has battled with Disney (and come out smiling), shared a panel with Jonathan Letham (author of this piece which you’d better read if you haven’t already), and worked out her fiction online via a CC license.
Ciaran (perhaps I should refer to her as Llachlan) made a lot of pertinent points, but perhaps the most important was the evident need for users of CC to select the license relevant to the jurisdiction they live in. For that reason, and because I feel obliged to finally remove my NC clause (for reasons I only begin to understand, but whatever), the license on this blog has changed.
Yes, you tens of millions of content mongers who are looking to reuse my musings on freeform radio, the Saskatchewan Roughriders, and occasionally on educational technology — take note.
And I see D’Arcy is already there, of course. I am unsurprised yet comforted.
