a link is currency
it has value attached to it
It shows your trust
It shows your knowledge
It shows you're listening
It grows if you spend it on others
When you link, they know. The system checks
When you link, they know.
Internal VS. External links

link out = link in
the proof !
quot;The link is an editorial judgment...
quot;There's a very legitimate concern about linking
to unveriﬁed or unveriﬁable resources. It becomes a
journalistic issue of 'can you trust the things you're
linking to', because by linking to it,
you are validating it.quot;
breadth and depth of the story
taste and decency
link to the debate rather than the cause
different from comment
1. Does the URL to which I am referring the reader reward him or her
with additional content that a reader of this story likely did not know,
or know how to get easily?
2. Does the text I am selecting to link this text give the
reader an obvious clue as to what the hyperlinked page
3. Am I using the shortest possible amount of text to
provide that clue?
4. Would the content of the linked text, or the context surrounding it,
reasonably mislead the reader into believing that the linked page
contains something other than what it does?

these sympathetic ﬁbers, our actions run as causes
