One question I have is how unique are many of the structures we all use? On
some level aren't they all derivative, whether its a sewing pattern,
tunnel-book, board attachment. While I have seen many people who stand out,
Keith Smith and Hedi Kyle among them, they got there ideas from somewhere
as well. I don't think any of what we are collectively doing was created in
In a case where that is clear, I agree, give credit, but in many ways we
then adapt that for our own purposes and it becomes just another variation.
