Searching the Creative Commons

The Creative Commons is the superhero collective we really need right now. I've said it before. I'll say it again. And it just keeps on getting better. Now you can search across the Web resources that are licenced using a CC variant. The search is driven by Nutch, an engine of which I'd never heard, and by which I'm now impressed (avert thy eyes, Churchill). My search for fly grafitti images I could use on a Web site fell a bit flat, but I tried some more mainstream searches and found great promise.
