I have chosen this licensing as, as a teacher, I have chosen a career in which I share my knowledge daily in the hopes of someone listening, retaining, adapting, and utilizing what it is that I have chosen to share. As an exchange student in Spain many years ago, I learned that in Spain the concept of copyright really does not exist. If someone has said something the same way you would have done it, then use it and move on. There is no need to spend the time reinventing it a different way. To me, that makes perfect sense.
