Credit where credit is due

I am usually keen to share any work I produce and take the time to apply Creative Commons licences – typically BY NC SA (attribution, non-commercial, share alike). The flip side of this is that I also take the time to attribute any resources I use with their CC licence. This process just got a whole lot easier with the release of a plug-in for Firefox and Chrome browsers called OpenAttribute that automatically collects the citation info so you can just paste it where required.

This also prompted me to release this blog under a CC licence using the simple instructions on the WordPress support site.

The plain text attribution for this page looks like this:

While the HTML version looks like this:
