Citation required!


Update: Steven worked as Chris's writing assistant on The Long Tail and Free. For the latter, this involved helping to organize and structure the chapters, editing rough and subsequent drafts, a light fact check for dates/figures/names, and reporting and drafting several of the case studies that appear in the book. Steven says he and Chris spoke early in the process about attribution; however, he was not involved in any discussions with the publisher or the decision to remove the citations.

    Gorgeous, great work!!

    I read it starting with the masthead and going clockwise. So “The science of command-V” was almost the last thing I read – and it got a good chuckle out of me. Hilarious.

    I teach.

    If any of my student used any of these methods, I would be absolutely ecstatic at their ingenuity.

    Unfortunately, most plagiarists are as transparent as scotch tape.
