Free PDF Writer Software with Creative Commons Support

CC PDF Converter is a free desktop based PDF printer software that helps you create PDF files from any windows application including Microsoft Office, web pages and so on.

Why another PDF writer when there exist tons of good alternatives like doPDF, Scribd, etc? There are two advantage with CC PDF Converter - first, it is open source and second, it has an inbuilt Creative Commons License generator so you can suggest how the PDF file should be used/shared by others.

You can embed any Creative Commons license into a PDF document easily or even put that as a stamp at the bottom of every page (watch this screencast demo).

This PDF converter is much similar to the Creative Commons Add-in for Microsoft Office that enables you to embed Creative Commons licenses directly into Word, PowerPoint, and Excel documents - the only difference is that you are not limited to MS Office and the CC license is added to the PDF file while the source document remains untouched.

How to Download Contacts from Facebook To Outlook Address Book

Facebook users are not too pleased with the "walled garden" approach of Facebook. The reason is simple - while you can easily import your Outlook address book and GMail contacts into Facebook, the reverse path is closed. There's no "official" way to export your Facebook friends email addresses or contact phone numbers out as a CSV file so that you can sync the contacts data with Outlook, GMail or your BlackBerry.

How to Download Contacts from Facebook There are still some options to take Friends data outside the walls of Facebook wall. Facebook offers the Takeout option allowing you to download all Facebook data locally to the disk (include

PhishTank Detects Phishing Websites by Digg Style Voting

OpenDNS, a free service that helps anyone surf the Internet faster with a simple DNS tweak , will announce PhishTank today. PhishTank is a free public database of phishing URLs where anyone can submit their phishes via email or through the website. The submissions are verified by the other community members who then vote for the suspected site. This is such a neat idea as sites can be categorized just based on user feedback without even having to manually verify each and every submission. PhishTank employs the "feedback loop" mechanism where users will be kept updated with the status' of the phish they submit either via email alerts or a personal RSS feed . Naturally, once the PhishTank databases grows, other sites can harness the data using open APIs which will remain free. OpenDNS would also use this data to improve their existing phishing detection algorithms which are already very impressive and efficient. PhishTank | PhishTank Blog [Thanks Allison] Related: Google
