a note on plagiarism – The Homebound Symphony
Which makes me wonder whether some of the plagiarism (or “duplicative language”) we’re now seeing so much of is a result of one small habit of digital writing: pasting wrongly.
Finally a reasoned take on the whole affair that is likely much closer to the truth but/and reveals something many of us writers outside of academia are guilty of.
(the “but/and” is duplicative language I’ve, um, adopted from Robin Sloan)
@ajay I really enjoyed this: a note on plagiarism – The Homebound Symphony
Thanks so much for writing it.
Daft Social lets you post and share notes, links or images by email subject only. From any email account.
Doesn’t even seem to be a timeline. Thus it’s kind of more of a micro blog than Micro.blog. Very interesting. (W00t)
One Fine Day: David Byrne Performs His Hymn of Optimism and Countercultural Anthem of Resistance and Resilience with the Brooklyn Youth Chorus – The Marginalian
With poetic lyrics that feel both staggeringly prescient and of sweeping timelessness, this buoyant hymn of optimism ripples against the current of our time as a mighty countercultural anthem of resistance and resilience, worthy of Whitman.
Worth your time.
The blessing of uncertainty – annie mueller
To understand someone else’s perspective (even a little), you’ve got to acknowledge that your own is limited. That your views come not from absolute truth but from subjective experience.
Yep. So much this.
If you’re in the startup world or are a entrepreneur, my friend and mentor Garrick van Buren has been killing it with helpful advice in his newsletter For Starters. Well worth your consideration.
Ordering my Day One Journal as a book is one of my favorite annual traditions. So cool to be able to pull past years off of the bookshelf and remember the incredible life we have.
Author, Thinker, and fellow Home Restoration Master Generalist Jack Cheng writes about his daily Daily Routine. I always find getting a peek at how others do their daily grind fascinating.
I finally have a small collection of items to post to The Cramped. I’ll be doing so soon. I don’t give that site nearly the attention it deserves and and struggling with what to do with it going forward.
Saw both Mean Girls and The Color Purple this weekend.
Mean Girls was good but a whole film studies course could be built around The Color Purple.
