Who kindly email to ask whether they can link to my content on my blog: The permissions for my site are expressed in (1) human readable form, (2) lawyer readable form, and (3) machine readable form in the Creative Commons license linked at the bottom of the page. The whole point of this is to enable people to build upon other peoples’ work without signing a contract. (Here’s a nice flash to make the point.) So please excuse me if in response to your request, all you get is a link back to this post. If you need express permission, then I’m sorry: CC-express is the best I will do, because a world that better expresses freedom is the space we are trying to build.
