Gnome In the item we ran yesterday about GNOME and the GNU Project, one aspect got snowed under a little bit. It turns out a claim made in the iTWire article about the role a blog post by Miguel De Icaza was false, and even though the claim wasn't ours, I did repeat it, and therefore, should correct it too. I also need to offer apologies for not framing the opening of the article clear enough - had I framed it better, a lot of pointless discussion and name-calling could've been avoided.

I mean, look at the Windows 7 kernel articles. You wrote paragraph upon paragraph of content, all derived from the article you linked. So much so that if one were to read your article first, they would learn nothing more from the original article.


That article is a recounting of a public speech held by Mark. I'm using his direct quotes, as jotted down by BetaNews, and the attribution is 100% clear in the VERY FIRST PARAGRAPH:

Before we start: thanks to BetaNews for once again detailing these technical talks regarding the core of Windows so well.

Thanks, I didn't catch that citation, my apologies Thom! Next time I take 90% of the content from another article, I'll be sure to quote that it was taken from that article. Yep, will do! Because proper citation allows a full ride to republish and copy whatever I wish elsewhere!

Are you enrolled in your Masters in Journalism yet? Perhaps you can ask your teacher about it.
