Craig Neilson writes about his three 2008 resolutions at WorldChanging — (1) Be vegetarian, (2) Walk, (3) Free stuff, where free is a verb:

This is the kind of group activity that causes massive change. Information can be an unlimited resource when we free it – a move that costs little and benefits many. What’s exciting about freeing stuff is that you don’t know how your stuff could be used.
Read the whole article, including some insightful comments on the value of setting stuff free.
Here’s Craig’s Flickr stream, with photos indeed licensed under CC BY.
Creative Commons — wholesome like walking.
