'Curator's Code': This, For Example, Is A Via
Moving to “honour and standardise the attribution of discovery” on the web, Brainpickings.org’s Maria Popova proposes curators attribute their sources one of two ways, using the “Curator’s Code”. A “via” indicates direct discovery, and would be used for reposting a bit of content with little or no change. A “hat tip” would signify an indirect link of discovery, wherein content is just a jumping-of point for new material. Details are at curatorscode.org.
