Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

Almost everything on this website is available under a Creative Commons license, which means that people can reuse my writing or music without having to ask permission, in most cases.

This week other websites have taken advantage of that:

  • Zaldor's World is a podcast from Detroit that features "Pocketbook" as the finale music for episode 38, which also includes some truly rude karaoke.

  • The F1 Podcast used several of my tunes as background music for show #5. The podcast covers F1 racing with a bit of humour, and its host Steve wrote that, "Guitar-based instrumentals are fairly rare on [the Podsafe Music Network] at the moment, so i was glad to hear your work as it was exactly what I was looking for. Keep up the good work." Thanks, Steve.

  • Simian Systems, makers of the Sitellite content management system (with open-source and commercial versions), has republished my popular article "Boosting Your Search Engine Ranking: It's No Trick" from last year.

I think getting some of my work out there for people to enjoy or learn from is worth more than trying to keep it locked up on the off chance that I might someday make money from it. That's exactly what Creative Commons is trying to encourage. I don't see why some people find that so hard to understand.
