Fast Co.’s slow linking update

Fast Co.’s slow linking update: BoingBoing’s Cory Doctorow says Fast Company’s new in-bound linking policy is only slightly less clueless than the previous one the magazine has been shammed (primarily, by Cory) into replacing.

Cory says their linking policy should be something like this:

The Web exists because no one has the right to grant or withhold permission for links. Fast Company exists because of the Web. Accordingly, we neither grant nor deny permission to link to our site, and urge you to do the same.

If they’d post that policy, he says he’ll buy 20 subscriptions to the magazine. (Which they’ll report as 30 Which the new circulation staff will appreciate.)
