Plagiarism and Aggregation
This site and the posted content seem to fall squarely within the sights of this article about "The New Plagiarism" otherwise known as blogging.
I tend to think of this site as a source of aggregate information. While reading books on a variety of topics, I take personal notes. These notes are more useful to me online, searchable and accessible from anywhere. These notes are often direct and complete quotes from the source. I tend to find common threads between articles and books I've read, and this network of information is useful to me.
These links might be useful to others as well. Someone happening upon comments from "Anarchist in the Library" may notice connections to "The Meaning of Everything" and this might prove useful or interesting or serendipitous in some way.
The argument could go either way, but I tend to aim for 'human aggregator.'
