Wikipedia Votes on Going CC

by Nick Montfort · , 7:30 am

Wikipedia may become available under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license. The site currently uses the GNU Free Documentation License, but the board has suggested a change. I find the GFDL cumbersome and not really appropriate for something that isn’t software documentation; the CC-BY-SA switch would facilitate sharing of material both into and out of Wikipedia. Whatever you think, if you edit (and aren’t a bot), go vote.
