Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Creative Confusion

MovableType 2.6.x added a CreativeCommons Licence module (off by default, but all too easily turned on). This has touched off a bit of a brouhaha, as various prominent bloggers grapple with the implications of turning it on.

A very good legal analysis of these implications is helpful.

Personally, I thought that the CC licence I chose for this blog closely mirrors the prevailing ethic in the scientific community. I’m happy with that choice, and I know that I will surely have to live with it.
