Wank, Flickr, Poll

Man, I have this weird inability to avoid reading posts about the OTW as they fly through metafandom and such, and I am so sick of "blah blah blah the womens are oppressing me" wank and "blah blah blah we're being outed to TPTB" wank.

Why can't we have some good Slashdot-style wank over what license we're going to be using for the archive? I mean, we should get some GPLv3 haters, of course, and some rabid BSDers involved. Plus, we could invite FSF groupies to the party. They're always a riot.

Oooooh, how about a long MySQL vs. ProtegreSQL flamewar? I love those.

Seriously, people. I need a change of pace here. You all should get on this right away.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaanyway, I am finding Flickr's The Commons project ridiculously cool. Lookit all the gorgeous pictures! I know that it seems like a sort of half-assed attempt at crowd-sourcing by the Library of Congress, but seriously, I think it's awesome.

I also have this desire to talk about myself my fic. So, poll! It's approval voting, so choose as many or as few as you like.

What story should I ramble semi-coherently about for a post?
