Shows now under Creative Commons Attribution


I've revised Rubenerd Show licencing. New episodes will be released under Creative Commons Attribution, and only with Share-Alike if included audio mandates it.

I already eschewed (geshundheit) the No-Derivatives and No-Commercial clauses, because I want people playing my show on theirs, and even if they run ads. Share-Alike imposes similar practical limits, which I don't think are useful for audio. I want people spreading the show!

(It's also in line with my preference for the BSD/MIT licences to the GPL, but that's for another philosophical discussion; along with Vim and FreeBSD being superior to Emacs and [GNU/]Linux).

Attribution is nice and simple. Feel free to take my audio and use as you see fit, provided you reference the show. Done and done :).

Author bio and support


Ruben Schade is a technical writer and IaaS engineer in Sydney, Australia who refers to himself in the third person in bios. Wait, not BIOS… my brain should be EFI by now.

The site is powered by Hugo, FreeBSD, and OpenZFS on OrionVM, everyone’s favourite cloud infrastructure provider.
