Just wanted to get permission before I posted a link.

Your website seems to be a great way for you to journal your learnings. I'm sure almost no one asks permission to link to a website, and I am sure that none is required. Most of us here are keen to see more people use and understand the usefulness of Wireshark. (And of course I can only speak for myself!)

I am of the same mindset as martyvis. If a web site is public, I see no reason you cannot link to it. There is really no downside to that, at least in my opinion. I have a personal blog and occasionally post links to other related sites of interest. I don't worry too much about getting the site owner's permissions.
