Thanks BoingBoing!

I love Creative Commons-licensed content. At Wired.com, we rely heavily on photographers who license their photos on Flickr for re-use with credit.

And now, I’m launching a data-mining project at the site world-facts.net using 10 years of posts from BoingBoing.net, which they license under a liberal Creative Commons license, allowing re-publishing for non-commercial ventures.

Thank you Boing Boing for trusting the community and trusting the world enough to know that you’ll still be successful even if you don’t control every use of your work. And I’d also like to thank Rob Beschizza, a BoingBoinger not pictured above, who helped me figure out how to make the import work out.
