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)

Daft Social

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)

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.

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.
