Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - How to Source and Credit Content

« Designing the Customer Experience | Main | Can You Really See What's Next? »


Ops my bad, I just noticed no links allowed in comments, never mind ;)

Whenever I research for a post (even if "research" is a big word in my case) I note down the links and a quick note in my Evernote entry relative to that blog post (funny 'cause I wrote about this just yesterday), and within the post I usually just link to the content from a relevant anchor text.
In case, instead, I cite chunks of text, I provide more information and provide anyway a link to the source.
I use a CC license for my blog as I do agree with what you say about it.
In the end, I am aware there's a lot of confusion about crediting sources especially over the Internet, where people believe everything is public domain, and I try to do things right. Sometimes I screw up, it's normal, like in this case (last post), but I am up to learn and adapt, that's the main thing in my opinion.
