On quotations used in my articles:
When I quote other websites or writers, I will often edit for the busy reader, using a style based on accepted journalistic norms (e.g., AP; Chicago). The intention is never to change the meaning of the original. Omitted text is marked with an ellipsis (...); altered text is marked with [brackets]; typos may be corrected; on rare occasions, I may reorder text. I also aim to stay within the letter and spirit of copyright law: specifically, the U.S. Fair Use and UK Fair Dealing codes.
If an organization or individual so quoted objects to being quoted in this way, they can request an edit or complete removal by tweeting @RiCHi; the request will then be considered by Computerworld editorial staff.
