Last week, I posted about finding and using Creative Commons-licensed content. It seemed a bit long, so I thought I’d pack the good bits about Flickr into a video. Check out the earlier post for more about how to attribute an image to an author, and other neat things you can do when you’re down with Creative Commons.
(Blip.tv is totally neat, by the way. It’s got CC licenses built right in!)
UPDATE: Fixed the link to my previous post.
Woot! YouTube’s got a new channel for citizen journalism.
This channel will highlight the best of the citizen journalism that’s taking place on YouTube, but its ultimate goal is to become a go-to news destination on the web.
Though as Dan Gillmor points out YouTube isn’t giving much back to the community:
I hope they’re going to find a way to reward the people who are doing the work. As I’ve said again and again, I’m not a fan of business models that say “You do all the work and we’ll take all the money, thank you very much.”
I also hope YouTube will give people a way to post using Creative Commons licenses, which are all about sharing information, as opposed to the currently restrictive terms of service. This is the main reason I don’t automatically recommend the service — though I do believe it offers great value in a general sense– and why I do recommend Blip.TV, which makes Creative Commons one of the defaults.
