Infrogmation's image of the week (or however long I leave this here).
Obey the Bee

My "photo of the week" Archive in reverse chronological order, with still older pics archived at Archive 7, Archive 6, Archive 5, Archive 4, Archive 3, Archive 2, and Archive 1

I'm a sysop on en Wikipedia; my Wikipedia user page. I'm also an admin here.

I live in New Orleans, Louisiana.

After a month in exile due to Hurricane Katrina, I came back to my beloved devastated home town. My main contributions here since have been to Category:Hurricane Katrina aftermath in New Orleans and associated pages, and more recently chronicling the city's history, culture, and revival.


"Infrogmation is one of #nola's most unheralded great photographers." -- Kevin Allman, editor "Gambit" New Orleans weekly.[1] *blush*

Free licenses

  • Authors should decide their own license preferences

I, Infrogmation, hereby "opt out" of the involuntary "license migration". Notes: The vast majority of my uploads I would happily agree to add cc-by-sa-3.0 to the listed license option (if that license is not one of the listed options already) IF I am ASKED. I do NOT consent to any change license of any of my copyrighted works that I have not personally authorized. I have NOT authorized any party other than myself to change licensing of any of my works without my explicit permission. See here on my talk page for discussion.

This was my stand more than 2 years ago. It has not changed. Months of work and thousands of edits have been required of me for this simple assertion of my basic authorship rights. I consider Wikimedia a noble project, but think Wikimedia should be deeply ashamed of the way they have treated and continue to treat contributors who have been kind enough to share their own media under free licenses. -- Infrogmation (talk) 13:23, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

Valuable quote

As some people have been using Wikipedia founder Jimbo Wales recent statements about inappropriate pornography as an excuse for wide puritanical bowlderization of Commons, I find this simple observation worth drawing some peoples' attention to:

"mere nudity is not pornography" -- Jimbo Wales [2].

I also upload photos to Flickr, the majority of which I license under Creative Commons. Some duplicate what I upload to Commons; many others don't. Some of the stuff I've uploaded to Flickr and haven't gotten around to uploading here may be useful to Wikimedia as well. Infrogmation's Flickr photos
