Hi Aaron,

Really enjoyed the presentation. I totally agree with you on the difficulty on identifying site creators. Of course sometimes this is down to the client not want this to happen, but where it is allowed, agencies can use readily available meta tags and standards to make their code provide this information.

I've written a short blog post here on the subject.
