Tom Zeller Jr. of the The New York Times wrote an article published in Monday's business section on employer intervention over employee weblogs. I am featured in the article. I will pick up a hard copy of the paper in the morning.
No, the New York Times didn't contact me before republishing my collaged recreation of Niall's original. That's OK -- I don't contact the New York Times before excerpting their work, either.
But I do scrupulously give attribution, which I would have thought customary in such situations, if not outright required by journalistic ethics.
There's no attribution in the current online version, just the caption "A recreation of Niall Kennedy's posting." (screenshot) That could give readers the impression the image was created by NYTimes staff.
I'll see how it's creditted (or not) in the print version in the morning.
Update (2:52pm pt): The print version, below the fold on the first page of the business section, has the same generic "A recreation of Niall Kennedy's posting" caption. Cool to see my collage work published in full-color in the NYTimes. Odd they didn't see fit to credit the source of a news illustration.
Update (2005-04-25 11:04pm pt): The NYTimes link inside the Niall Kennedy quote above has been updated to target a freely-accessible version of the article, using New York Times Link Generator.
