[linux-elitists] Open-sourcing a book

begin Brooklyn Linux Solutions CEO quotation:
> Not on the Internet. Things disappear.
If the two essays in question disappeared, it'd means that I'm no longer
saying them on the Net. Aaron's example was a page quoting "what Rick
says about internal modems." In your (above) hypothetical, I'm no
longer saying it.
But my licensing _does_ permit any subset of the pages to be used in any
way without attribution, so there's no reason those "things" need
disappear: Just the attribution would, in such a case.
So, any requirement for continuity-of-knowledge is satisfied, as is my
desire for control over what I appear to be stating in public.
(Again, please imagine that we're talking about some documents less
trivial than my "rants", and such. That was just the only example I
have on hand, of where the licensor has two different objectives.)
Cheers, Right to keep and bear
