I think you are being a little harsh in the case of Bill, I don't have any
connection with New Alchemy, and he doesn't deserve bashing given his
contributions to pc and the world.  I think that if you check his writings
and his public statements he is very good at attribution.  Bill's ego isn't
that enmeshed in rideing on other's accomplishments, his ego has other fish
to fry.

I also remember my grandmother's wise statement, "He who tootith not his own
horn, the same shall not be tootith.
