Eyewitness news

Eyewitness news: NPR did a story on that new Russian magazine that has a familiar look.


Novy Ochevidets, or The New Eyewitness, bears thought-provoking cover artwork, black and white cartoons and a mix of news and arts features in a glossy three-column layout — a dead ringer for the American weekly The New Yorker. But The New Eyewitness has no connection with The New Yorker, which does not license its name or layout and has no foreign language editions.

Which reminds me that I haven’t pointed to the extremely interesting article by Malcolm Gladwell (come to think of it, everything he writes is extremely interesting) regarding plagiarism — what (and when) it is, and isn’t.
