creative commons info

Ok, just so y'all know that this and most blogs are under a creative Commons license. Please see the right side bar bottom for this blogs' CC information. Even if a blog doesn't explicitly say it, just assume it is. If you lift a story, picture or video, please attribute it to the source.

For example, you take a story posted at CNN.com and post it to your blog, quoting it directly. In the sentence leading up to the quote or at the bottom of your post simply add "Via: CNN.com" or a similar attribution. This is just good manners and ethics. Teh Internets is a wonderful place for free, open source information, but don't forget to give props to the original source of that info. Thanks.
