You always knew this was common

Prompted by an email from Ian urging me to update my copyright notice, I finally headed over to Creative Commons to choose the proper license for this site. I ended up going with Attribution-ShareAlike license which allows people (that’s you!) to do anything you want with the content on this site as long as you provide proper attribution (Attribution) and release derivative works under an identical license (ShareAlike).

I’m doing this not because people are clamoring to use my content, but because I want to live in a society that has a large pool of material from which writers, artists, filmmakers, designers, and musicians can freely draw from to create their own work. This is my small contribution to that pool. If you’d like to contribute as well, choose the appropriate license at the Creative Commons site.
