Was pointed out by a reader that, as I license my blog under a fairly liberal CC license, linuxworld was well within their rights to to what they did. Of course, this is true. My problem is not a legal thing (‘oh my! they stole my ideas!’)- I mean, I put them out there for people to read, and I was rather flattered that slashdot, linuxworld, and others have taken those ideas and run with them. What bothers me is the journalistic slopiness implied by the poor attribution- creating the impression an interview was given seems like very poor journalism to me.
