Hi, I'm Patrick

Some rights reserved

I strongly believe that content we (all humans) create should first and foremost be usable to encourage further creation. As such I license my content under a creative commons "Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.0" license, and most photographs (on flickr) from 2007 onwards under an creative commons Attribution 2.5 licence - feel free to use it. Code is, where possible, given away under a BSD-style license.

The basics

Everything on thepatrick.io, thepatrick.com.au, myio.com.au, soapbox.co.nz, m.ac.nz, mmpie.org, patrick.geek.nz and pqphotos.com except those listed below or specifically noted otherwise is licensed by Patrick Quinn-Graham under the Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 license. This means you may take text, photos, code, and other items covered by the license and do with them as you wish as long as you provide credit and release the new work under the same license. (The exception is Commercial use, see below.)

The exceptions

With the above, keep in mind the principle of fair use when you’re deciding if you can use something, regardless of copyright, CC license, etc.

This page is based very heavily on, perhaps some might even say is a direct rip off of, Some rights reserved (kottke.org). Let’s face it: it was pretty good before I modified it.
