Blogging, ripping, mixing, and authentein

Will Richardson of Weblogg-ed suggests that ripping and mixing is very much like blogging. As students put more and more content online via portfolios, blogs, wikis, etc., it's likely that their content will be reused by others. His take is, so what? Focus on that process and the learning that results. Create collages.

I can go along with that, so long as there's a way to track back to the originator of each component of the collage. The Greek word authentein is the root for author, authority, authoritative, and authentic.

Primary sources are important.
