News Sites Realize The Web Is More Than Just Them

from the about-time dept

While we noted that the New York Times is finally opening up their tech archives, it looks like a few other sources are realizing that there's a world wide web out there, and have started linking to outside sources. The article looks at the BBC, News.com and the Wall Street Journal all feeling much more comfortable linking to outside news sources (often including "competing" coverage of the same story). It's about time. News.com has done this for a while, but folks like the BBC seemed to believe if someone left their site they might never come back.
