Thanks for this Andy. I'll tweet about the article. If there are newsworthy

You may have seen the unveiling of the 'Leekfrith
Torcs' on the news today.
Clem Rutter started, and I expanded:
which is currently on en.Wikipedia's Main Page, 'In The News' section.
I'm particularly please that the 9Mb image used was released, promptly
after my request, by Staffordshire County Council. UK local government
bodes such as that one are not usually known for their grasp of open
content and the importance of making such media available under open
licences. I'll be using it a lot, as a case study - with 25 million
main-page views per day, I'm hoping that it will help to change
attitudes in other public bodies!
