HotBot has relaunched. This time it’s XHTML/CSS driven thanks again to Douglas Bowman. He talks more about the redesign on his site.

I used to love HotBot (before Google), and it looks like they’ve packed some new features into this new version.

Creative Commons:

“Creative Commons released version 1.0 of its Licensing Project, and the first release of content under its Founders’ Copyright. These are the first two projects in a series that Creative Commons will launch, all designed to help expand the amount of intellectual work, whether owned or free, available for creative re-use.”

This is a pretty great thing — an alternative for licensing creative material that even Roger McGuinn of the Byrds is using.
