oh, maybe it wasn't "for free."

I thought it was work for free because of this:

in particular the verb "gave."

but then later abby writes:

btw, on my web site, I have listed my place of employment with a 
link.  I don't really get specific about what I've done for them, 
though I could, if asked.
Lessee...right now it links to my "personal" acct on the company 
server.   In the past I've had more description and included a link 
to the front page.
It is on my "portfolio" page.

It never occurred to me to ask if this is okay.  Why shouldn't it be?
It's like a resume.

Anyway, I think I sort of agree with Sabrina on that one.
If you think you might not like the answer, don't ask.


If you are a contract worker, you need a contract.
