Photo credits

I tend to enjoy adding the odd photo to liven up my posts. Thanks to Lawrence Lessig‘s wonderful work setting up the Creative Commons licensing, combined with the efforts of amateur photographers worldwide, and last but not least Flickr, it’s incredibly easy to find great images. Currently all the images I’ve used come with the CC Attribution 2.0 Generic Licence, so here are the attributions:

The lovely header image of Dundee from the east, in the site header, comes from here.

In “The games degree bubble”, the graduation cake comes from here and the dog chasing bubbles (especially love this one!), comes from here.

In “Game degrees: possible future directions”, the maths teacher at blackboard, is from here, and the B-25 Mitchell Bomber is from here.

In “Management for Geeks”, the toddler photo is my own, and the spaghetti code is from here.

In “Your own worst enemy”, the binary tattoo is from here, and the woman reading horoscope is from here.

In “Get your source under control”, the clock gears are from here, and the child chasing pigeons is from here.

In “Dare to be Digital 2008”, the cocktail photo is from here.

In “Action Time”, action man comes from here and the 360 panorama is from here.

In “Why not to build in-house tools”, I used this giraffe, this mop bucket, this iceberg, and this cat on a railway line!

In “The case against C++”, the thinking man is from here, the binmen are from here, and the New Coke can is from here.

    you know what I love – flickr stats, for finding where my photos have been used on the net.

    thanks for the credit, it’s amazing how many people don’t understand that they can’t just take photos without looking into the creative commons licenses

    from, Jo (photographer of the binary tattoo)

    The “Model View Controller is Extinct” tilt-shift photo is mine… it is Photoshopped, taken waiting for a ferry to load on a Greek island. Glad it was useful!
