So far, the closest thing to your "PostcardWare"
License that I have found is this:

The Educational Community License
http://www.opensource.org/licenses/ecl1.php

It grants all the same rights that your license does,
and has a provision to prevent confusion between
derivative works and the original (i.e. modified
versions cannot be claimed to be the original).

The only thing missing is the postcard condition :)

You all know the current license displayed in each
source file (see below 
for reminder). I would like to stay as close as
possible to this simple 
license.

Basically, I want to preserve my intellectual
property while granting anyone 
to use and redistribute ICS source code, including in
commercial 
applications and royalty free.
