Jim Minatel on Plagarism

Original post: http://morewally.com/cs/blogs/wallym/archive/2006/11/24/502.aspx

Jim Minatel of Wiley has a good post on plagarism.  It is at http://wroxblog.typepad.com/minatel/2006/11/an_authors_view.html.  His post is built on Nicholas Zacharias' post at http://www.nczonline.net/archive/2006/10/385.  The bottom line is that it is important to not read someone else's work when you are working on the same subject.  I remember a couple of years ago, I was talking to Bob Beachemin.  We were talking about Sql Server CLR Objects.  he offered to send me a copy of his book on Sql Server Yukon beta2.  While I have always appreciated it, I told him at the time it was probably not a good idea because I was working on our ADO.NET book and specifically the part on Sql Server CLR Objects. 

So, the bottom line is that I agree with Jim 100% on his statements.
