    Note: I have added this to the #edcmooc tag cloud not necessarily as a contender for the contest (though I would love a gelaskin for my phone) but rather as a reaction to seeing someone else upload this image to Flickr as their own. It was a good opportunity to talk about creative commons, share-alike and attribution, further proof that the network teaches all in many ways.

    www.jisc.ac.uk/ webinar on MOOCs. While I have listened to MOOC talks up to my eyeballs, these folks had some new things to say and it was really interesting to hear the analogies and discussion unfold from so many perspectives.

    {Sorry, I didn't write it in the drawing but all acronyms should always be deconstructed: MOOC, in case you may not have heard yet, is a Massively Open Online Course}

      Guilia. During the pre-EDCMOOC, Chris Swift created an EDCMOOC group on Flickr and asked us to add pictures to that. Being new to Flickr, I thought it was a repository of images, not original work. In the meantime, I had forgotten about it. When you emailed me the other day, I immediately deleted the image and apologized for my ignorance. As part of my contest submission, you will note that I included Aaron Swartz in the mosaic, representing the lesson I learned in copyright. Thank you for the benefit of the doubt and being part of my Personal Learning Network. You can see my submission here. bit.ly/YUsZ6A

      Hi Cathleen, I didn't see your apology, I just saw the picture disappeared. I have no hard feelings at all. I'll edit this description to be less critical. I'd love it if you also released your images under Creative Commons-Attribution-Share-alike by going to Owner Settings on the right of your image and clicking on Edit. Based on that license you were entirely entitled to upload my image as you did, provided you also released the picture under that license and provided attribution, which was more my concern than anything else. The more we share the more we all gain. Thanks for commenting.

      Thanks for the reminder to change my own settings... although I do have images of "unknown provenance" that I am not quite sure how best to handle.

      Gordon's MOOCow got picked up as avatar for a social media account for an institutionally affiliated mooc in development. I forwarded to Gordon, whose inquiry may be more mannered than my first impulse. The irony is that it's a course he'll probably be interested in.
