My site actually is read sometimes!

Thursday, August 16th, 2007

Well, life intruded again!  It’s been a long time since I actually posted anything on this blog. So long, in fact, that I had to have my password sent to me since I had forgotten it!

I’ve been gearing up to do a little bit more work on my website, hkfilmfan.com, so I was doing some searching on the web for tidbits about my favorite stars. Somehow I ran across the Wikipedia entry for David Chiang. Imagine my utter surprise when I saw 2 paragraphs about David lifted directly, word-for-word from my website! After I picked my jaw up from my desk, I immediately set about figuring out what I should do.  I have never really looked at Wikipedia much so I didn’t know if I could really do anything. It turns out they have a link so you can report copyright violations. If I read the history of the entry and the person who made the entries correctly, it seems like they have been cited for it before. I’ve since asked for the entry to list my website as a reference, so maybe I will get credit for writing some of the entry.

On the bright side, at least someone has checked out my website and appreciates some portions of it!  I just wish they had asked me first!

Let me hear from you – I’d like to know that someone is out there.

So long for now!
