This is great to hear! The more visability the better!
Quick off-topic comment -- from my perspective Creative Commons wasn't
explained well on that site. Free Software and Creating Commons are not
about "nobody owning things" and "nobody making money". It is about
changing the social and legal rules to accept and support a full spectrum
of motivations for creativity, including a full spectrum of business
models for making money. FLOSS is BIG MONEY these days, with it being
seen by much of the IT sector as the only way to do a necessary market
correction that the government is unwilling (or unable due to not
understanding IT?) to properly deal with.
Just my thoughts anyway...
