My article Links to Tens of Thousands of Legal Music Downloads got posted to the front page at Kuro5hin Friday afternoon.

It seems to be having an effect. iRATE's user base jumped from 700 to 1700 in two days. A Google search for "Links to Tens of Thousands of Legal Music Downloads" went from 28 hits friday, to 217 saturday, to 457 today.

It's tied with several other pages for twelfth place in the Blogdex top fifty, which tracks weblogs looking for the most talked about links.

The last thing I did when I finished the article before submitting it to Kuro5hin was to place it under the Creative Commons Attribution-NoDerivs license. If you agree with what I have to say in the article, please copy it to your own website or to other message boards. The copy I keep on my own website uses only very simple markup and is almost entirely self-contained, to enable easier copying.
