1 July 2009 - Hitchwiki switched its license to Creative Commons (CC-BY-SA). This means that: 1. it simplifies the distribution of the Hitchwiki's content where only an attribution is required (+ all derivated works require the application of the same CC-BY-SA license); 2. Hitchwiki will be licensed under the same license as other wikis (Wikipedia, Wikitravel, Wikivoyage), sites (OpenStreetMap) and images (Flickr's CC), a strong bond with which helped immensively in building up the content of Hitchwiki.

21 June 2009 - It is now possible to follow all the cool hitchhiking stories from around the world via Twitter. Thanks to alex!
