great project. good idea. 
[and, btw., esp. as everybody will know microsoft's 'be creative' ad
campaign, a great example of advanced cynicism imhop]

however, maybe you should think about an extra-section called "and what
about the missing links?".

no, not for web-related issues. but to include some reflections on the question of
why do people steal from 'themselves', and others, to earn their bucks by selling
their stuff to/working for corporations. yes, 'to make their living', 'to
survive', as we all know. that's at least one part of the problem. you have to
change the structures, not only your personal attitude.
