This is why I love Creative Commons

Woot! I got a photo published again, this time in Physics World next to a review of a book about pendulums.

Foucault's Pendulum“Getting into the swing”, Physics World, April 2006, p. 40

They can do this because I license my photos under the Creative Commons Attribution License, which says “Do as you will, just give me credit.” The whole point of the Creative Commons is to provide a body of work that can be freely built upon to enrich our culture. I’m just doing my part.

    yippeee!

    i would guess because you take such good photos, and yours are tagged well it makes it simple for folks to find what they are looking for. :)

    i wonder if folks needing toads go and see toadster, perhaps i should change them all to toadster instead of toad.
