Crediting People

Bill is re-thinking our relationship with the media: ‘When referring to a document published by a non-personal news source (e.g. newspaper, or even group weblog), credit the human being who wrote the article….This might….(a) improve the feedback loop by tracking quality of work by individuals, and (b) disintermediate publishers.’

Might bring us closer to the day when there’s a URI associated with author’s names.
