Why I Copy other People’s Writings

You probably came to this page via a link in my CodeIgniter category of posts. The reason I put that link there is because I’ve found myself copying the CI User’s Guide.

I like to copy other people’s writings. I know my High School English teacher wouldn’t approve of this—neither would all the litigious people out there.

However, the way I learn stuff is by copying and annotating learning material. Sometimes, I rephrase things to better suit my way of thinking.

I don’t always share my plagiaristic posts with everyone on the Internet. But, when I do it’s because I believe it will benefit others—and, I’m hoping it’s author doesn’t mind.

BTW:
If you are looking at one of my just published posts, and it looks almost the same as the original author’s writing, it’s because I haven’t annotated and paraphrased it yet.

If you’re asking why I don’t write my own material, my answer is:

It takes me too long already to learn all the stuff I need to learn in order to play catch-up with other programmers…and you want me to come up with my own material just so I can legally share my learning experience with others who are teaching themselves just like me?

Heck! Sometimes the stuff I copy remains on my site exactly the same as its author wrote it just so I’ll have it where I can find it.
