from the almost,-but-not-quite dept
An amusing article from Scientific American about how technology makes plagiarism more difficult to get away with. The article itself is made up almost entirely of quotes (attributed by footnote) from other writers. It’s an amusing way to make a point, I guess. Of course, it would have been even more impressive if the entire article (as opposed to “almost”) were simply made up of actual sentences from other writers – and if he didn’t use such obvious and famous quotes.
