The content of mikewest.org is licensed under the quite verbosely named Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 Unported License. Among other things, this means that your are free to share bits of this website’s content under the following conditions:

  1. You must attribute the work to me in a reasonable way (I’d suggest a link back to the original source in a way that makes it clear where the material originated).

  2. Your use must be non-commercial. If you’re selling the content of this website, or using it in order to increase your ad-revenue in some way, then you’re operating outside this license agreement, which isn’t good.

  3. You must distribute the content without modification.

Noted Exceptions

  1. The content of the site is available for you to share. This does not include the site’s layout. I do not intend for this to be a theme you apply to your own content. Build on top of it, morph it, tweak it, but make it your own before reusing bits for your own inspired projects. I’d be the last to claim that everything about this website is original, I’m standing on the shoulders of much better designers than I. But I implemented every bit myself, and I expect you to do the same.

  2. I didn’t think it needed clarification, but this license explicitly excludes the content of my bio. Please write your own bio.

For any other use, or questions about these conditions, please get in touch.
