This is open source. All I know is that I want people to use this in interesting ways. I made it for a project for art school, but I knew it had a potentially more interesting scope than that. The best way to insure this is to make it free to use. So that's what's up.
I don't know much about the different licenses, but I understand GPL is a nice one. I like the way it worked for Linux, so we'll use that. Spread the love freely, keep the source code with it.
It would also be nice to know that you're doing with it. I'm sure there will be useful things and crazy things. I'd like to hear about both, but particularly if it's crazy (even fuckin' crazy). If you're working under a non-disclosure contract, or if for any reason you can't really get into any details, all I can ask is that you let me know whenever it's appropriate to do so. In fact, if you happen to be in (or passing through) Rome, I'll buy you a beer just to hear what you're doing.
Although it's a toungue in cheek comment, I am being sincere. :)
And I suppose I wouldn't be averse to getting a shout-out (ie in non-New Yorker, that's "some credit" ;) if you use this in any interesting way. It actually would mean a lot to me because I'm fixin' to be an artist one of these days, and I could use some exposure, as they say in the art world.
If, however, you can't accomodate either or both of these additional requests (at which piont, you should consider yourself a cold bastard ;) I'll just have to get over it.
