New measures like the Curator’s Code and the Council on Ethical Blogging and Aggregation have called into question the way we curate content online. On today’s Morning Media Menu (MP3 link), GalleyCat editor Jason Boog shared his best practices for crediting sources.
So far it’s been hard to differentiate between crediting a content creator, like a news reporter with an exclusive story; and crediting an aggregator, blogger, or other curator for finding the story and providing the link. We tried to clear that up this morning in the podcast.
Boog also talked about how writers can use Google+ to edit documents inside a video chat. If you’ve ever had to organize a book club or perfect a manuscript long-distance, it’s worth a try.
