Such laziness seems ingrained in today's web curation, and it's especially prevalent on sites like Twitter and Facebook, where people are racing to post links to current events and interesting material. The urge to send our audiences to valuable new places is a great one, but we need to do it in a more thoughtful way that rewards the people who deserve the attention.
So, the next time you link to something, check it out a bit more. If it's just a summary of someone else's original reporting or analysis, take the extra few seconds to link to the original. Let's all raise our linking standards, and give credit where it's genuinely due.
