Thoughts on promotion & further development

What we need is a way to present them on different websites. As a start, a CC affiliate page should be able to display a widget that shifts or randomly picks case studies and displays an elegant graphic / logo + short text. At best, these would be varied with regard to content and geography. A more advanced version would allow anyone to display such widget - and maybe personalize it: only CC BY content, only music and literature, only asian, and so on. --Michelle Thorne 16:33, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
