#23 (WEEK 9) Copyright, Creative Commons, and Congratulations!

Web 2.0 is reshaping how we all think about copyright. I think this is a very positive thing. Since more people are creating content, rather than just consuming, I think internet users are realizing that quality work takes time, effort, and a considerable amount of thought. Yes, we should be acknowledged for our labors. That's why I sites like Creative Commons are so important. I'd like to think that yes, making money is good, but being recognized for our work just might be enough.

So, my final thought on the 23 Things.
Consuming content is fun, but creating stuff that others enjoy and use is exciting and gratifying.

I'd like to thank those that read my blog. I tried not to be too boring.

BTW-I'd like to give a shout out to CTAP Region IV
I love the work they have put into cybersafety. No, Digital Citizenship! Check out the rest of what CTAP IV has to offer in Cybersafety.

Am I off topic?
Yes, as always.
