Non-bloggy types, move along. Nothing to see here.
The rest of you, here’s a minor conundrum. In the previous entry, I credited The Mobile Technology Weblog for the find. But actually I found it via Engadget, who credited MTW, who pointed to the Reuters article. This is often the case, with multiple layers of attribution between me and the source. What’s the protocol?
Generally, I just choose the site closest to the source, and credit them. That probably doesn’t make sense, as I should be credit the source where I found them. Or is it important to show the entire ‘chain of evidence’? Ultimately, who really cares?
