Last night the podcast edition of James Patrick Kelly’s Hugo-nominated novella Burn won the Nebula Award for best science fiction/fantasy novella published in the U.S. during the two previous years. Cory Doctorow writes on Boing Boing:
As far as I know, that makes it the first Creative Commons licensed work and the first podcast to win an Nebula.
That’s one small step for James Patrick Kelly, one giant leap for podcasting and Creative Commons (sorry, groan if you must).
