More good reasons to have a Web site

Three weeks ago I received this e-mail:

My name is Glenda Ott and I am principal flutist in the Paradise (California) Symphony Orchestra. I am also on the Symphony Board of Directors and as such, one of my jobs is designing the Season Brochure introducing our new concert season. I am writing to request permission to use Picture #23 of your August 3, 2002 Vancouver fireworks pictures on the cover of our Symphony Brochure.

I was quite happy to give her permission, even though she didn't need it, because the Creative Commons license I apply to my original content on this site permits anyone (like Ms. Ott) to reuse material I've created without having to ask my permission, as long as they're not trying to make money with it, and as long as I get credit.

However, since she was kind enough to ask, she got a better, higher-resolution version of the photo direct from my digital camera as a bonus. I'll be interested to see what the brochure looks like.
