Steve Rubel over at Micro Persuasion has started up an online petition to give credit where credits due in relation to sourcing stories, both in the blogosphere and outside. There are a number of high profile bloggers who never source yet magically come up with a whole lot of information “from no where” without the source who will probably be annoyed by this. We’ll leave the naming up to somebody else and urge everyone to sign the petition. For future reference though we think there needs to be some better education available to new bloggers on how and when to reference a source, theres been plenty of cases of blatant rip offs, yet others who do so knowing nothing better or that they are doing the wrong thing.
