This license governs all content and code found within this site.
This site exists to inspire and help those working with the web. I don't want some silly, protective and complicated license to get in the way of that.
In fact, I actually want you to take what you find on this site and use it in your own projects. Use it to have fun. Use it to make money. Either way, use it how you see fit — that's what it's here for. All the code that powers the site is publicly available in an open-source GitHub repo.
That said, there are three points of clarification to append to the do whatever you want rule:
You may not copy my brand directly. You can use it for inspiration. But please don't up and lift it for your own, at least without asking first. I'm also happy to put you in touch with the designer who created it.
If you copy and publish wholesale articles, you must recognize my article the original by adding a canonical meta tag to yours.
While you don't have to credit me (although I'd be forever grateful if you did), I'd love for you to share your work with me. I like knowing that what I'm doing is helping, and that's a great way to give back for what you've received.
In the end, I want you to have fun playing with the web. I want you to earn money from it. I want you to help make it better. And if you can use something here to do that, do it!
Use your best judgment and don't let this silly license get in the way.
