I would like to take this oppurtunity to congratualte Prof Lessig and the creative commons project. As many of you know I am strongly in favour of intellectual property rights and I cannot think of another scheme like creative commons that has allowed the sharing of copyright materials (except for computer code, of course) within the rules of intellectual property. The concept of amending licences to carry out the noble virtue of altruism is truly inspired and has clearly invigourated the public to bring forth their own contributions to society.

So congratulations and have a merry christmas.
Alex Stewart

Eben Moglen, Here’s a video of his keynote at the Plone conference in Seattle.

The entire large image still has to download for it to be displayed, so it’s slow to load, and the scaling itself causes many browsers to pause in rendering. It would be better to create a new scaled version of the image the size you want it to appear, and include that on the page instead of the original large version with scaling tags.
