Credit Others

In this fast pace world of information share, it may be that one doesn't remember where he or she originally got a good idea. Yet, as much as possible, it's a professional courtesy and responsibility to credit others for their good ideas.

I was reminded of this recently when I noticed someone share an idea as if it were their own when I knew the history of the idea and the individual whose perseverance and good research led to the idea in the first place. It would not have taken much for the one who shared the idea to credit the individual who introduced the good resource and effort in the first place
