Why write your own article when you can quote someone else?

Is it just me, or is it a bit lame that Sys-Con’s XML Journal quoted most of Tim Bray’s article rather than just linking to it? Apparently, they couldn’t get Tim to actually write for them. Ick. By the way, NeoOffice/J is cool. It is quite nice to be able to run OpenOffice without running X. XML Journal is free to quote the following from my blog:

Sys-Con’s XML Journal is apparently out of ideas and in need of ad revenue, said Kevin Dangoor. Perhaps next time, they’ll consider creating their own content instead or at least using a “hyperlink”, which I hear will be popular any day now. Perhaps the article will even be something that’s actually about XML, rather than a Mac GUI on top an office suite.
