Projects and New Year Resolutions

New Year Resolutions -

To pull finger out and get on with it.
To release projects under a Creative Commons GNU GPL license.

By the New Year, check link under View my complete profile you should be able to find some projects that a Social Entrepreneur might have and read the terms of the license. Basically, it grants you the following rights and responsibilities:

1. The freedom to run any program released under the Creative Commons GNU GPL license for any purpose.
2. The freedom to study how the program works and adapt it to your needs.
3. The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor.
4. The freedom to improve the program and release your improvements to the public, so that the whole community benefits.

You can do all of these things provided that you distribute any copies or derivatives with the source and a copy of the GPL license linked to later. And, as so well put in the one liner, " you don't have to worry about someone stealing your ideas. If it's truly original you'll have to ram it down their throats."

A beautiful sight, We're happy tonight

After watching aspirational shows like Strictly Come Dancing and the X-Factor, the urge to learn to dance and sing is overwhelming. Perhaps in time for Simon Cowell's next show....
Simon Cowell - he always has to go for one better. Why he ever supported Steve is beyond me. G4 and Denise Lewis were my favourites to win the shows. G4 and Denise Lewis singing and dancing in Cowell's new show would raise the roof sky high.
