Working the network - Missing Links

Working the network - The Boston Globe.

Once again the Boston Globe has an article online, that's all about being online, without include ANY links, to ANYTHING mentioned in the article.

Not even a link to the author's website. It's over here: Maggie Jackson.

Links that could have been included in the article:

Facebook
MySpace
LinkedIn
Mzinga
Aaron Strout's profile on LinkedIn
Plaxo
Twitter
Hi5
Mzinga Jobs
Susan Koutalakis on LinkedIn
Lindsey Pollak- blog, twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Getting from College to Carreer
Maria Stein, director of career services at Northeastern University
Evan Gotlib on LinkedIn
IdealBite
Challenger, Gray and Christmas Inc.
Maggie Mistal
Maggie Jackson's book "What's Happening to Home: Balancing Work, Life and Refuge in the Information Age"

It didn't take me that long to compile these. I went a little overboard, but for people reading Boston.com, these links could help them understand the content of the story.

I'd leave this as a comment on Boston.com, but the articles over there don't support comments.

Update:
Maggie agrees that the Globe should include links in their stories and asked me to share this link to her new book:

Distracted: The Erosion of Attention and the Coming Dark Age.

  1. It runs in the family. In a story today about Sarah Palin, the Times gives prominent mention to "a Wasilla blogger, Sherry Whitstine, who chronicles the governor's career with an astringent eye" without linking to her blog (although, to be fair, neither did the Anchorage Daily News when it mentioned her).

    Her blog.
