Wikipedia, Creative Commons, and Karaoke

Jimmy Wales and Heather Ford hosted an official “Heather and Jimmy 50 Party Club party” in San Francisco this past Friday, at which Jimmy and Larry Lessig announced that Wikipedia content would henceforth be licensed under Creative Commons. This was followed later by a celebratory karaoke performance of “I’ve Got You, Babe” which was one for the ages.
