Compfight, Flickr and the Creative Commons

This past weekend, I've been using Compfight to gather rich Flickr images in preparation for a few unique community learning events. This week, my mind and home communications technology will be humming as I participate in:

1] a recorded technology workshop for artists and musicians;
2] a remote guest speaking engagement with an ICT in-service class; and
3] a meetup with scattered Ontario educators (& other global attendees).

While evenings this week will see me teaching & learning from the comfort of my home; it occurs to me that some of the content may be of interest to weblog readers. For starters, consider how wonderfully, Compfight, Flickr, and the Creative Commons play together:



If you know of other tools that are effective at leveraging the Creative Commons, I'd be grateful for any leads...

Good review of Compfight, Rodd. Thanks for that. I'm also concerned about how to use it with students and also how to give proper credit to the original author. There is a "toy" that somewhat simplifies the process and I wrote about it recently - http://dougpete.wordpress.com/2009/01/25/a-toy-for-creative-commons/.

CC opens a world of options for computer savvy user. I know that you keep this very visible and it's another option for people to use when the situation dictates that their own creations are not possible.

http://www.qflick.com is another great way to search for flickr photos, you have the option to search by license as well.
