I like Howtoons, despite the name being perilously similar to a series I loved even more. I like their artwork style. Things I like less:
- What can I do with their downloads? Duplicate and hand them out in a school workshop? Come on gang, CC licenses, please!
- There’s even more work in doing this than there is in making video. At this rate, they’ll be retreading very familiar ground for months to come. What’s the plan to avoid that?
Update: poking around the site more, the nearest they come to a copyright page is this, which asserts (by omission) all rights reserved. Merde. But that makes sense when they’re apparently preparing a book.
Ah, well. It’s another children’s cartoon science book. An unusually thoughtful and pretty one, but a book nonetheless.
