Collaboration Is important, But Persistence Is Critical

"A valid source is a valid source, forget which news organization came up with it. In the linktribution environment, you link to content."

This is part of a post buzzed about Monica Guzmán's (Seattle) incident where her The Big Blog couldn't link to the competition, because editors haven't agree on this matter.

One time Guzman wanted to link to a Seattle Times story because Seattlepi.com didn't have the story. At first her editors didn't want her to do so because that was the competition's work, but she insisted. Her editors eventually said if the PI doesn't have a story, she can link to the Times as a last resort.

She dropped out from the group blog experience! We are glad she acted her own way, because as she established, "It's about the collaboration, not the scoop!"
