Quote:

“Whenever I’m answering a question, I try to provide a link to the reference and I get pretty good at this after 8 years of writing and blogging and so I know where too look, and that make sure that the subject that’s been discussed has the right answers has the right information and the people can act on it later on.” – Doug Nordman
