Joi Ito's Web

Joi Ito's conversation with the living web.

Larry showed me mozCC, a cool plugin for Mozilla based browsers that shows the Creative Commons license of a page on the browser window margin and also lets you examine the license in more detail. Can someone make this for IE and Safari?


Unfortunately, if they made it as flexible as they should, they would run out of cool little icons. ;)

Since it's possible to create these plugins that works in both Explorer and Internet Explorer.
This could be extended for the Windows Version, to also work with other files, like MP3/Ogg's as mentioned on CC's technology page. Meaning, browsing for files in Explorer, would also show appropiate license info when available.

Joi, are you a part of CC?
