      Hi Renata.

      Firstly I'm very happy to hear that you're attending an English
      language conference in Australia. I'm a bit disappointed though that
      I won't be able to meet you there. I think this conference is in
      Perth and that's quite far from where I live.

      Re citing resources of Webheads: I am speak for myself here but I
      have a sneaking suspicion that most Webheads would feel the same. I
      always feel like it's a honour to have others quote me or my work,
      and I certainly don't need to be asked. I also trust that all
      Webheads would automatically cite references from their colleagues
      anyway, but if they didn't that wouldn't really bother me either, as
      I know that it can be time consuming to chase up these permissions.

      I take the attitude that whenever you write or something on the web
      it belongs in the public domain and becomes part of the collective
      wisdom we are all contributing to. If someone takes something I have
      read or written and uses it another context - fantastic! But I
      realise it's a little different when people are working on articles
      or similar that they intend to be officially published and they need
      to protect their IP before it's published.

      My 2c...
