Wired CD Now Available

Just got my copy in the mail.  It rocks – not only heroes like Chuck D and David Byrne, but also a new track from Thievery Corporation, and much much more.  The articles are also not to be missed, particularly the one on Brazil. (Soon to be available online, I suppose.)


Creative Commons gets in Wired and implements a wonderful makeover for its website – not bad.  I’m thrilled because of what this means for the broader movement, what it means for Creative Commons as an organization, as well as what it must mean to the particular people who put this together.  Glenn, Neeru, Matt, Mike, and co., you guys earned this – enjoy.


CC will put high quality versions of the songs up on November 9. In the meantime, you can content yourself with downloads linked below. But, seriously, go buy a copy of the magazine – it’s worth it. (Note: these are not all under the same CC license.  The Beastie Boys, My Morning Jacket, and Chuck D tracks are all licensed under non-commercial sampling-plus; the rest are under sampling-plusPlease see the Wired CD site for details.)
