#84 - Three Out of Four Ain't Bad

A short episode today, fueled by an Amsterdam Brewery 9% Imperial Stout and 3 out of 4 wins in Curling this week.  Featured songs include a recommendation from a fellow Redditor, an Ottawa band I just discovered this weekend, and a new tune from Great White Buffalo - all that music and some cool things the Free Music Archive is doing.  Tune in and enjoy!

#82 - Mid-Winter Podcast

Time for another (short) podcast!  Most the songs on this list are new releases, plus I have the latest official single from I Am Not Lefthanded.  I talk about Serial Podcast again, the 2015 NHL All-Star Game, and Project 52.

#81 - Best of 2014

Kicking off 2015 with a somewhat lazy look at 2014; most of these tracks were taken from Jamendo’s Best of 2014 playlist, with a few exceptions.  I’m going to try to keep up with the podcast on a more regular basis in 2015 as well.  In today’s episode I mostly talked about random things.  Apologies for some of the music hiccups!  My intention today was just to get a podcast released.  Stay tuned to the end of the episode & hear some podcast recommendations.

State of the Commons Report


Now Playing: This is Killing Me by Haunt


I found this report via the Free Music Archive.  It's called the State of the Commons report, and basically highlights the strives forward that we've seen for Creative Commons licensing since 2006.

The first level of the report is a pretty neat looking infograph; there are printable versions in various formats (PDF, PNG, JPG - you name it) so if you were interested in printing it off and hanging it somewhere, you could.  In it, the highlights include the increase of licenses from about 50 million in 2006 to a whopping 882 million in 2014.  That is huge!

There is also a link to the much longer, wordier report - which to date I admit I haven't read.  It looks like there is some solid information in there though, so I fully intend to read it (I am a copyright junkie, after all).  If you're at all interested in copyright and Creative Commons, I think it's in your best interests to read the full report.

Overall the Creative Commons put together a very informative, extensive report that should be shared everywhere.  Here's to even MORE licenses in 2015!
