Although I would agree that there is a difference between a print mindset and an internet mindset, I disagree strongly with somebody who argues that the internet is about linking and that not to acknowledge sources is OK. Of course, links are essential, but date and place (blog or author's name) is also important for people to check the info; after all, that is why we instaured referencing vs plagiarism. Plus I don't believe that the non-linear way the internet works is an excuse for what is basically lazyness.
