    Post Creative commons search

    Boing just posted that you can now use advanced image search to look for creative commons stuff and other free licensed images. Dont know quite how it knows - maybe it looks for links on the same page to the license or maybe it uses an image extraction on the BY-NC-SA bit... well whatever they're doing - this is a big deal.

    Someone who painted that barrow for me on my site... In fact looking at all the pages (I get 4 of them once you click through) then there are 4 out of the 63 images in total are from my site. I just thought it was a bit sad that I do a search for something pretty generic like map icons and get a significant proportion of the images from my site. Its as though mine is one of just a handful of sites out there - like, where the hell are all the rest of them ???
