Yes ... a long time ago. His response was very positive.

Nor I the copyright arbiter.

For mentioning, no. For posting diagrams, yes.

I think the general consensus among origami folk is that whether it is 
necessary or not it is always good to seek permission. Apart from anything else 
it gives the creator of the design a nice warm glow when they realise other 
people are enjoying folding it. I certainly always appreciate being asked.

convention booklet editor ...
