Reading Pick a License, Any License by Jeff Atwood inspired me to pick one for the code I post on this blog. I picked MS-PL. I certainly intended people to use the code I post, this make that intent more clear. I have modified the my copyright footer to reflect this selection.
[EDIT 01/21/2015: This has changed to be the Apache license or the Ms-PL. MS-PL url was also updated.]
