      Romney has a youtube channel which is particularly good.

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Mitt Romney, and we'd love to have your photo added to the group.

      I think I need to get your autograph. Or maybe a signed photo. Yes, that's what I want. (Go Romney!)

      So you worked under Romney at Bain? But nothing to say about what sort of president he'd make? Interesting.

      No. It was an off the record event.

      I mean to solicit your opinions about your past association not that particular event...or does Bain have a lockdown on general impressions. The uber NDA.

      Weird how one finds things.. I saw the wired article on someone's ebay blog.. which lead me to wired ..which lead me to here... and in looking at your profile I saw the very cool thing for the National Geographic/IBM Genographic Project and clicked through.

      Since I'm adopted and haven't gotten a hit in the 3 years since I put myself on the Oregon open adoption list (stands to reason since I'm now 53 that my parents have gone to the great beyond) this is going to be a nice little Christmas gift to myself so I can at least see my ancient roots even if I can't find my current ones.

      Life is indeed a journey.. and thanks for posting your results and link.

      Anything left to do? Again, wikimedia has used scores of my pictures, and they all have the same license. And there is no more favorable license offered by flickr. In other words, this is as close as anyone on flickr can get to "free without any strings attached". There is no better option available to us.

      If I am still missing the boat, just please tell me what to do without any of this detail. If you need a "go for it" from me, you have it. And if I need to do something on flickr itself, please make sure your suggestion is doable.

      OK. So where is the "upload page"? Is that this page? If so, CC-by-3.0 is fine with me. If not, please provide the URL

      Attirbution language - I can't find any place to indicate that on the flickr CC pages. If you know of a place where that can be done, please provide the URL.

      I have had it on my Profile page:

      "All of my photos are free to use forever with a simple photo credit:
      photo by Jurvetson (flickr)"

      Thank you. This is the upload page. The post should be enough for varification by admin or authorised reviewer. Placement of attribution info is appropriate, and is MY fault for not thinking to look at your main page here.

      I will remove the cluttered posts.

      Steve, feel free to ignore Amadscientist on this issue, it simply isn't correct. Your CC-by-2.0 license is perfectly acceptable for Wiki Commons, just as any CC license that allows commercial and modified usage is acceptable. And please know that we always appreciate the wide range and high quality of the photos you make available on Flickr!

    16. Amadscientist 47 months ago | reply

      Well....if the impression I left was that any of the photos from this member were unwelcome I apologise for that and being incorrect at the same time, but will add the image was still not correctly varified visualy because the attribution is wrong at wiki.

      Mr. Jurvetson. I will say you handled the whole thing well and I will not bother you further but feel free to message me with any questions or concerns should you have any.
