Making open standards as open as possible

A great announcement from the microformats community today concerning use of the CC Public Domain Dedication.
Today we are changing the microformats wiki to require that all contributions be placed into the public domain. This means that any page created, or any content added to the microformats wiki from here forward is placed into the public domain for maximum possible reuse.
Be sure to check out the whole post for the rationale and a nice backstory outline, starting from back in 2001.
