I got an email today from Schmap!! letting me know one of my pictures on Flickr had been short-listed for inclusion in the next Schmap guide to Philadelphia. All my pictures on Flickr are licensed under a Creative Commons license – specifically Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike.
What I find most exciting about this particular picture-event is that the picture they may use is one I snapped with my Blackberry while Jude and I were leaving the Mutter Museum to go get our first cheesesteaks of the trip. I find it fitting that I was in Philadelphia for an iSchool doctoral student conference, toured a collection we study briefly in SI’s required curriculum, was using a mobile device, had chosen a copyleft license, and now may have contributed to a city guide (resources I love).
