Hello, sometimes I see you around. You walk pretty fast, and I'm too shy to say anything to you...

I think this is lovely: http://www.union.ic.ac.uk/scc/icsf/library/history/picocon22/xwing/folding.html ... , and it "feels" like free culture, but there is no indication either way. I've just pinned it to my Free Culture Pinterest board; could you let me know if it is restricted by copyright in any way?

About the origami xwing - you probably won't see this, but just in case anyone else wonders in future and sees this... I didn't think to put any copyright notice on it originally but would have chosen CC BY-SA. Naturally I'm delighted for people to share it, else I wouldn't have put it on the web :)

Alex got the original design off the internet, but there was no info about its origin.

Thanks for the comment, it's great to see people enjoying it :)
