Another interesting article on plagiarism

As an educator who went to college in a time before the internet, laptops, and wi-fi, and as a fan of technology and the many benefits it provides, the rise in incidents of plagiarism is something I find fascinating and disturbing. This is yet another article on the subject by Trip Gabriel of the New York Times. The idea that there is a generation of students that now see nothing wrong with swiping words from other writers is frightening when you consider the ramifications it may have for our future. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/02/education/02cheat.html?th&emc=th
