Wikipedia to Become Creative Commons Compatible!

Head straight to the transcript of Jimmy’s announcement, which also includes video. Also read the official Mediawiki Foundation resolution.

From the transcript of Jimmy’s announcement: “We’re going to change the GFDL in such a way that Wikipedia will be able to become licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license.” So they’re changing the GFDL itself. Perhaps this will mean universal compatability between GFDL and CC-By-SA?

Wow. I’m all but speechless.
