Supporting the (Creative) Commons

When people give you lots of nice presents, it's good to say thank you. I just said thanks, which is why my name is on this list of supporters.

The Creative Commons helps provide licensing, hosting, and inspiration all designed to enrich our common cultural heritage. If you look at my photos on flickr, you'll see I've licensed my photos in a way that says you can do anything you like with them as long as you give a brotha a little credit. This helps people to create new good things from old things without worrying that they might get in legal trouble.

I just said thanks. You might want to do the same.
