I just thought it was interesting that this photo was used in an internet news story. Didn't make me rich (it was free) or famous (not very many hits) but I was happy to contribute in a small way. The fellow asked permission which I was happy to give.
On a less happy note, I discovered an excerpt of one of my blog posts was stolen and posted on a commercial site. Another blogger I know was similarly used. I contacted Technorati (how I found this out) and two other people who were similarly taken advantage of but if any of you readers have any ideas on how to get them shut down I'd appreciate it. I'm a sufficiently naive internet user as to not be able to figure out who is hosting this web site. I won't post the site here because I don't want to do them any favors (or get retaliation). I asked them to remove my material but I don't expect any miracles.
If you'd like the site address let me know in comments and I'll e-mail it to you.
