Lilia Efimova discusses the challenges around attribution in a cloudy, bloggy world. "It is not easy to find to whom and how to credit when one's ideas are inspired by reading weblogs of others and conversations in a weblog network. When those ideas leave the blogosphere and take shape of something that is part of paid work (publications, presentations, instruments, methods), lack of attribution could result in a bitter feelings as sharing one's ideas for a "collective good" is not the same as giving them to someone who might be competing for a publication space or consulting assignments in the "real world"." Of course, these issues will become common ground for academics and businesses as we continue to connect and network and learn online. -HJ
