Hello Mr. Benkler, thank you so much for publishing your book under a creative commons licence. I noticed it because of a recommendation on Mr. Lessig's blog. I am already busy reading it. I am a Wikipedian, and I noticed that your article on Wikipedia does not have a photo. As Wikipedia is notoriously short on photos of living people, I thought I would go directly to the source and ask you to upload some photos to the Wikimedia Commons (the common media repository for re-use in all international Wikipedias).

Hello Mr. Benkler, thank you so much for publishing your book under a creative commons licence. I noticed it because of a recommendation on Mr. Lessig's blog. I am already busy reading it.

As Wikipedia is notoriously short on photos of living people, I thought I would go directly to the source and ask you to upload some photos to the Wikimedia Commons (the common media repository for re-use in all international Wikipedias).

I forgot to add a link to first steps on Wikimedia Commons (here: First steps). Pictures cannot be embedded in Wikipedia directly from the web (to safe server load). To upload a picture it is neccessary to
  1. create an account on Wikimedia Commons (then an upload link appears on left side of screen)
  2. upload file from local harddisk
  3. add basic information in summary field (description: Yochai Benkler photographer (author):xy license: e.g. {{GFDL}} (these infos are very important)
  4. When the file is uploaded, the head line [[Image:...jpg]] can be directly embedded in all wikipedias, and the image appears in the article. Longbow4u 03:48, 18 April 2006 (PDT)
