My greedy hands are full of books! (Made With Creative Commons) @ccmx @creativecommons @xattack @scannopolis


Made with Creative Commons is translated to Spanish, printed, and available!

Over two years after starting the project, 976 commits, getting involved in long processes (besides the scope we originally envisioned, such as waiting for the translation to be refereed or going over two quite long rounds of copyediting), after leading a team of five translators to Spanish and working closely with a similar team that’s quite close to publishing the equivalent translation in Norwegian… Behold!

I won’t get again in details on the contents of this book, as I have repeatedly talked about it in the blog. The photo above is of the pages where the CC licensing schemes are presented. And the following is a page I like including in all of my (so far, three) published books:

I have made a point of requiring my university’s editorial department to use the legal page to be very explicit regarding the expected usage of this book, by inviting every person that comes across it to copy this book.

So… Where can you get your paws on one of them? Well, of course, you are welcome to come to our institute’s bookstore and buy one. For people in general, MX$280 (≈US$15), for UNAM-community, MX$140 (≈US$7.50).

Of course, that’s quite inconvenient for people living over 15Km from me, right? What about those living in other countries?

The book can also be downloaded from the Institute’s repository. And I will soon upload it to an online, on-demand printing site (probably or something like that. Can you suggest one?).
