Amazon lays out its case against publishers like Hachette: "We believe 35% should go to the author and 30% to Amazon" http://t.co/T4XbinVZgOSame RT @MZHemingway: Am I feeling OK? I 100% agree with @geneweingarten http://t.co/56OHhNbtQa and disagree with @jackshaferThings online are either public or private, right? No. There's a universe of behavior that falls in between http://t.co/w38GZ1Y45r@mathewi @anildash My thinking on this comes from Marshall MacLuhan. Literacy created modern privacy and the tribal Internet destroys it.

Retweeted by Mathew Ingram@mathewi Fantastic article! ICYI @hartzog & me discuss etiquette here http://t.co/yYLHfwqRQj & RTBF http://t.co/T9DVw25cz8
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram
Agree MT @jilliancyork: @anildash Just a note: the biggest crit of ‘right to be forgotten’ is the implementation (private regulation)Just FYI, I mentioned your idea of "obscurity" here in the context of private vs. public, @EvanSelinger: http://t.co/w38GZ1Y45r@SaraMorrison: And so would I -- but taking a short statement of fact doesn't trouble me at allI think @anildash is right to raise the issue of what we mean when we say something is "public" http://t.co/w38GZ1Y45r"It's complicated: Why we need a new etiquette for handling what's private and what's public" http://t.co/9mdLhoCGuD.@SaraMorrison @howardweaver: not someone else, somewhere else -- an encyclopedia. People use facts from encyclopedias all the time@mathewi the only possible reason to push an algorithm is monetization. would destroy the platform.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram@jayrosen_nyu: I saw it mentioned a number of times during the conference call, including here: https://t.co/OtFeiXY3LY.@SaraMorrison @howardweaver: I just don't see why using facts from Wikipedia, even in the same order, is even remotely controversial.@SaraMorrison @howardweaver: Yes, but so what? It's not as though the author of the Wikipedia entry needs to be credited.@hornOKplease @johnbattelle: Dick Costolo said today that it was a possibility Twitter has consideredDick Costolo said it's a possibility MT @caitlinkealey: @mathewi Is that a possibility or are you speculating?@NaheedMustafa: agreed@mathewi tyranny of attribution is a real problem. Forest for the trees, etc.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram@mathewi don’t care as long as I can have choice between raw and algorithmic.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram@mathewi I'd leave. One of the added values of Twitter is to provide raw content.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram@Besvinick @mathewi Yet, @nuzzel is useful to you, right? I think both experiences should be available.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram@mathewi I joined Twitter when Google Reader died (this was the next best thing). If Twitter curates my feed, I'm out to find a replacement.
Retweeted by Mathew Ingram@joshtpm: That's what I think is getting missed -- some of what he did was clearly plagiarism, but much was non-attribution of trivial facts@mathewi I would ultimately leave - I’ve very carefully customized my feed to see what I want to see
Retweeted by Mathew IngramSo if Twitter decided to curate the feed with an algorithm, would people leave or just complain about it the way they do with Facebook?.@howardweaver @SaraMorrison: Wikipedia sourced those comments from a book about the subject -- should the NYT have credited W or the book?.@howardweaver @SaraMorrison: So any unattributed facts that appear in a story you would automatically discount?Twitter blown off as facile & shallow, but #Gaza shows how it can engage an audience and, perhaps, motivate. Is that to be derided?

Retweeted by Mathew IngramAre sponsored content and native advertising easier for Medium because it is already a non-traditional publisher? http://t.co/XGZL4ATxp1Plagiarism is the insider trading of journalistic infractions. Common, low-level, doesn’t get at the really serious infractions.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramSo one lesson of the Benny Johnson affair is: If you live in a glass house, don't go throwing rocks at others http://t.co/5lDEu1wG60@mathewi @SaraMorrison @seanpower when I read the accusations they barely made any sense: most of it was fact plainly restated.
Retweeted by Mathew IngramNew: "Medium becomes even more of a publisher as it experiments with sponsored content" http://t.co/XGZL4ATxp1.@SaraMorrison @seanpower: She didn't "rewrite Wikipedia," she used a short statement of fact as part of a larger piece about the individualClassic: AP rushes to correct tweet that accurately reported U.S. lawmakers falling over each other to back Israel. http://t.co/bjef9SE6Nl

Retweeted by Mathew IngramPlagiarism has nothing to do with the plagiarized. It has to do with the plagiarist’s willful perpetration of a fraud on the reader.

Retweeted by Mathew IngramHow do I close you and/or return you to the library? RT @arctictony: @mathewi I'm an open bookThe thing that grates most about OKCupid’s chatty approach to ethics is that they’re part of a $5bn multinational http://t.co/ebRszWeEfx
