This is something I should have done a long long time ago. But as they say, better late than never. I received an email yesterday from Robert Sebescen at offered to translate and host the posts from the Powerful Python series. I was going to say yes and then realized that though I didn’t have any sort of licensing information on The ByteBaker.

So today I’m changing that. All the content that I’ve written on the site is under the Creative Commons license as stated above. It basically means that you can redistribute my work and create derivative works from it (such as Sebescen’s translations) as long as you give me due credit. However, if you are not allowed to use the work for any commercial purposes (ie, you can’t sell it or charge people to see it). I’m not again people making money, I just don’t want them doing it off of my work without giving me a cut. I have contact info on this site, so if anyone’s interested, drop me a line and we’ll talk.

I do reverse the right to change the license in the future, however I can’t see myself doing that anytime in the near future. For readers, this isn’t really a change at all. But the great thing about computers and the Internet is that it promotes an incredibly diverse and productive remix culture. And I want to my part to give back to that remix culture that has given me so much cool stuff.
