Does Tod Maffin Copy and Paste ALL His Ideas?

If Tod Maffin is capable of copying verbatim sentences from the internet and presenting them as his own, then is it much of a stretch to suggest that all his "cutting edge" ideas (yeah, like show me one!) come from simply reading other people's essays?

Try looking through back issues of Wired, and see how many of the notions touted as big deals then mean anything now.
Pretty much the same as Tod's "visions".
Utter nonsense, that's out of date before it's published.

Not that he's alone in using other people's brains to do his thinking for him.
I admit, I get mine from Bob Dylan, Dan Mcleod, Howard Stern, Irving Stowe, and Amy Winehouse and ... (on and on and on)

Hey - thanks for pointing out the wording between my post and the source you found.

For the record, I quoted entirely from a CBC Corporate news release (which, clearly, quoted from elsewhere).

If you have a beef to pick, it should be with the original release from the CBC. You're smart enough to find it.


P.S. Oh my God, this posting, in particular, totally ruins your thesis of me being a plagiarist. I wonder if you'll let it stand on your blog?

So ... you "quoted entirely from a CBC Corporate news release" ...

and you're NOT a plagiarist???

Let it stand on my blog?
I'm guessing that YOU wish you could erase this one.

What's your problem?

Tod Maffin's version of absolute power.
I wrote a comment at a famous blog.
Tod didn't like it, and took the intial steps of legal action to have it removed.
He was successful.

It made me an unhappy camper.
And I happen to really like it here.
