Citas | De plagios, referencias, intertextualidad y promiscuidad | Thomas Mallon

"The internet had blurred still further the demarcations between legitimate and illegitimate appropriation. Virtual information that appears on your own screen tends to seem, viscerally, less someone else's than when it's printed in a book with the author's name on the cover. The boundless textual promiscuity (Mallon) of the web has also decisively altered the way we think about information; the point is not so much to be good at remembering things, as to be good at finding them quickly. Already web skills are playing an important role in the evolutionary struggle for survival".
