Love your site, found (perhaps) a licensing issue

Hi!

I recently stumbled upon your website, it is very inspiring to read.  If
I can offer a bit of constructive criticism, it seems you have most
content on your website licensed under this license at [0].

For the article at [1], I got reminded of ambrevar's amazing blog
article at [2], which is licensed under the license at [3].

Since I assume one of you has been inspired by the other, one of you
both might want to change licenses for that specific blog post, as your
version prohibits commercial purposes, whereas ambrevar's prohibits such
prohibitions.

Apologies for the noise in case I got it the wrong way around, and keep
up the writing :-).

Ah ! That's not my only source of inspiration but indeed it was inspired
by this blogpost and others. I am no license experts, but you might be
right — at least by quickly reading the two license.

That said, I am not fully sure if there is any problem because my
blogpost is not a modification of his, it's written by me, inspired by
his and other.

In any case, it make me wonder why I choose cc by-nc-sa and not by-sa… I
don't see reason, so I am probably gonna switch my CC license to the
same as ambrevar anyway 😛.

No worries ;) Most of the time, noise is better than silence :D

Cheers,
