Copy & Paste Culture

I'm so honored - I have been invited to the University of Linz in Austria to speak about plagiarism at a seminar on "Copy & Paste Culture". Plagiarism and unethical behavior in research seems to be running rampart these days.

I just got a link to a blog about a guy jerking around a woman who is using him as her ghostwriter [A week of kindness] . It is so utterly shocking to see this woman's complete disregard for what she is supposed to be in college for - to learn. She only cares about getting good grades and has made the dean's list. I sincerely hope that her professor discovers the plagiarism!
