Generation theft

J.D. Lasica posts about a conversation with BlogHer co-organizer <a href="http://workerbeesblog.blogspot.com/"Elisa Camahort about blog plagiarism, and cites a few examples of people plagiarizing newspaper ledes in their blog entries about BlogHer (New Media Musings: Plagiarism in the blogosphere).
How lame!
Also, where’s the fun in that?

    There is also the possibility of a careless post, without paying attention to quotes and correct attribution.
    I do think that blogging, as a whole, is self-correcting and extremely critic of its participants, so even slips like these that JD mention won’t matter much, or will have a resolution quite soon (As is the case with the Corner).
