Its Snowing in Dunedin

What a great day, I woke to a white world, Dunedin came to a standstill except for the crazy people who love to try their luck on the icey roads! all to get to work ! Umm, my flatties both stayed home and we all had snowfights. Just hope the airport opens in time for my flight tomorrow afternoon to Auckland.

The Grand Finale

Want to check out a great project. My first web presence ever and I have done it with a Google Website. In fact I had never even looked at a blog or You Tube before starting this project, So my eyes have really been opened. ;-)

Click on the link below and you will be magically taken there.

I have never done the majority of these great exercises before, and found them very exciting to learn. Thanks to Rachel and Max I have learnt an enormous amount under their kind eye.

My Blog has been good for publishing text and photos, and links through to moving images on Slideshare and You Tube. These are great for showing movies and video imagery. Although the Slideshare didnt show my movie maker movie with all the effects I had put to them. I will experiment with others at a later date.

I look forward to using some of it to enhance my art world
Thanks Heaps

Creative Commons, What does this mean ????

Choose and apply a CC licence

There are a range of different catagories that you need to select from and understand what the differences are
for each...


This picture had a CCL of....
Attribution Share Alike Attribution-ShareAlike License

Other Catagories include.................................

Attribution (BY)

This licence lets others distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon your work, even commercially, as long as they credit you for the original creation. This is the most accommodating of the licences offered, in terms of what others can do with your works licensed under Attribution.

Attribution-Noncommercial (BY-NC)

This licence lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work noncommercially and although their new works must also acknowledge you and be noncommercial, they do not have to license their derivative works on the same terms.

Attribution-No Derivative Works (BY-ND)

This licence allows for redistribution, commercial and noncommercial of your work, as long as it is passed along unchanged and whole, with credit to you.

Attribution-Share Alike (BY-SA)

This licence lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work even for commercial purposes, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms. This licence is often compared to open source software licences. All new works based on yours will carry the same licence; so any derivatives will also allow commercial use.

Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works (BY-NC-ND)

This licence is the most restrictive of our six main licences, allowing redistribution. This licence is often called the “free advertising” licence because it allows others to download your works and share them with others as long as they mention you and link back to you, but they cannot change them in any way or use them commercially.

If you haven’t used CC licences before, or need a reminder, the Creative Commons international site offers some things to think about before you apply any CC licence to your work, and then you can choose to answer some questions to determine the licence best suited to your needs.

Or, simply choose from one of the licences listed below. They share a set of baseline rights. Whichever pathway you use, your licence choice will be expressed in three ways:

  • Commons Deed. A plain-language summary of the licence, complete with the relevant icons.
  • Legal Code. The fine print that you need to be sure that the licence will stand up in court.
  • Digital Code. A machine-readable translation of the licence that helps search engines and other applications identify your work by its terms of use.

For help in applying your licence in either html or non-html formats (Facebook, Flickr, Youtube, etc), visit the FAQs section.
