The wikification of Code has launched. To all the insanely insightful souls who’ve criticized and extended the book, welcome.
Creative Commons has also taken this opportunity to launch a beta version of a newly branded tweak of an old license — the CC-Wiki license. We’ve been talking to wiki developers for some time now. They’ve been looking for a license that was (1) share alike, but (2) required attribution back to the wiki, rather than to the individual contributors to the wiki. We realized that could be achieved with a very slight change to our existing Attribution-ShareAlike license: rather than requiring attribution back to the copyright holder, require attribution back to either the copyright holder or a designated entity.
So we’ve made that slight modification to the attribution clause in this beta version, and used it for this wiki. But we won’t release the license generally till we’ve had the ordinary time for discussion. Click here to join a discussion about the license, and any further changes people think we should make.
