provided focus, a deadline, and the impetus to get started.

The Public Domain makes it possible for creators to learn and share culture; often through online resources like:

the digitized Romeo and Juliet, found in the Web’s first edition of the Complete Works of William Shakespeare” hosted by MIT (the Massachusetts Institute of Technology)

And Project Gutenberg, a remarkable volunteer organization which makes more than 100,000 digitized public domain books available worldwide, including Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra

Cory Doctorow, Nina Paley and Allison Crowe
for questioning copyright and leading by example

The free software community shared tech advice:
Charles H. Schulz, Roman Gelbort, Viktor Lindberg, Kevin Smith, Luke Slater, Matěj Cepl, François Revol, Brewster Malevich, Paul Philippov, Mike Linksvayer, Jake Kromer, Jan Wildeboer, Fanen Ahua, @rpcuttsFabian Rodriguez, David Butt, Marjolein Katsma, Morten Juhl-Johansen Zölde-Fejér, @agentsmith, @marcelwink, and @openuniverse

Graham Linehan for resolving a last minute “Irish” question
and Nicolle DeCoppel for depressing movie suggestions

But most of all, my wonderful crew of Beta Readers provided invaluable feedback in a ridiculously short span of time:
Larry Russwurm, Bob Jonkman, Nienke Hinton, Wayne Borean, Lawrence Yeh, Sameena Topan, Nicole Russwurm, Enkanowen and @openuniverse

Athough any errors are, of course, my own, I thank you all for your generosity.

I could not have done it without you.
