The Inspiration Section

For over a year now I have been automatically uploading content via google reader and ifttt (if you haven't use ifttt you should check it out) I mostly did it this way to quickly document the influences I was seeing during my graduate studies. Now that I am out of grad school, I feel that I should retire this way of posting. I'm not really adding anything to the conversation this way – only moving content from other blogs onto my own. While I think it's perfectly acceptable to show your influence, I'm not sure that aggregating the rationale and writing of others onto my own site is proper. Or ethical for that matter… 

I haven't deleted my past posts as I think it is good to keep a record of these influences. But from now on I will be more selective with my posts – and add my own thoughts for things that I feel the need to elaborate on.
