I got an email today with a link to this post, pointing out that the vast majority of the material was simply taken from my site without attribution. In “the west” (the united states and Europe) we consider this plagarism; in college, it can get you kicked out – in publishing, it can land you in jail.
I choose to be flattered. But, if the author wanted to add an attribution and link to Creative Chaos – gosh, that would actually be nice.
UPDATE: The author apologized and removed his material from his blog, implying it was a coincidence. I wish we could have talked; if it was a coincidence, he didn’t need to remove it. If it wasn’t, I’d just like a little credit! 🙂
