Week 6 Blog Post: Part 1 & 2

Part 1

I put a total of four tags on my picture, one of which was the citation of the source.

Part 2

Unfortunately, I couldn’t access the link to the “Owning the Past” article. However, based on my opinion, I believe that there isn’t a specific owner of history. Past experiences are what shape an individual, so the true “owner” of your own past is yourself.

The level of copyright/open access that I selected for my website was CC BY NC SA. This means that the contents of my website can be shared as long as I’m given credit, and for non-commercial purposes. In addition, my website must be shared or modified under the same terms. I plan on using the same creative commons for my final project because I feel like it allows flexibility, and at the same time still allows me to have control over what happens with my work and how it will be used by others.

Potential limitations that I could encounter for my final project include coding. So far, I don’t know much about coding, however, I’m excited to learn a lot about it this semester in HIST 390 to help me get over this limitation.

The copyrights and licenses that have been assigned to the sources used so far in the class are CC BY, where the contents of the website can be utilized, however, credit must be given as requested by the author. Above is a screenshot of an example source that was provided in the Week 5 folder, titled “Evaluating Information- Applying the CRAAP Test.”

    I agree that that licensing is a good idea; it restricts a lot of commercial use of your website, but gives you credit! I also really enjoyed your thinglink.

    The true owner of the past being yourself certainly sounds true. Someone mentioned the old history being written by the victors in a comment on my blog, and it’s a very similar concept, considering our own perceptions decide what is real for us. I chose the same CC for my blog and I feel like most of us have similar feelings about not wanting our words put into an advertisement. Shocking.
    Also, cool Thinglink. While I find it surprising, you’ve made me curious as to the history of dentistry. I’m looking forward to the rest of your project.

    I chose the same exact copy right for my own website, I feel as though I too want people to be able to use my works but like you said I want it to be monitored as well so people are completely changing what efforts I put into the work itself!
