[TIPS] Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia is a site that encourages folks to upload and share their media files that they have created. No, not like YouTube. These are images, sounds, animations, etc, and are available for others to download and use under the Creative Commons license. There are sites all over the Internet that encourage the open sharing of content that is owned by the viewers. I've made a few of mine available under that license on the Flickr site. Most of my pictures aren't the kind that anyone else would want, but there are a few that others may like. Here's a wiki being used for the same type of thing.
