Remote scholarship

This is a link to an article about plagiarism written by a guy named Erik Campbell. It's a little long, but he has some decent things to say. He mentions Nietzsche and Borges, anyway, so it was pretty much always guaranteed to win me over. I like the way that the article handles this concept in a casual way. Does using Google results to determine the relative importance of plagiarism and mentioning the case of George Harrison make him a "charlatan," to use Jakob's word?

In any case, the guy lives in Indonesia, and I don't know what to make of that. It doesn't sound too bad to me, though.
