We are ramping livecontent 2.0 up now after our big work stride for CC
5th bday...fred, thanks for stepping up...this livecontent 2.0 has an
ISSN number and more!
TVOL, can you tell all the timeline for this...the best way to help out
right now is to get your content uploaded to a site that supports cc
licensing in a preferred media format...flickr, etc...and make sure its
listed on the http://creativecommons.org/projects/content_directories
Other great ways to help are on the livecontent page:
