I have an "alert" set with Google that emails me when ever "Dawson Station" gets blogged about. Of course, it is usually me tooting my own horn. Occasionally, it is something cool, like a French website. More and more often, it is my words and pictures put on someone else's blog and made to look like their own, like this example.

It is called "webscraping", and while it has legitimate uses, this one is just plain theft. It took me a minute to figure out where this even came from. It is from my first YouTube video and includes my word-for-word description as well as all the comments left from others. Imitation may be a form of flattery, but this just pisses me off.

Oh well, that is enough steam for now. Back to more usefully endeavors.
