The Globe just ripped off Steve Garfield

The Boston Globe has an interesting follow-up on the new parking meters used in Boston. Apparently, the city is violating credit card company agreements by requiring a minimum charge on the meters. A nice get, no?

It would be, if Steve Garfield hadn't covered this ground yesterday. Sure, maybe the Globe was already on the story, but I doubt it. Steve posted his stuff at 8:24 a.m. yesterday. I think it's pretty clear the Globe saw his post and decided to follow up on the point. Would it have killed the writer, Bruce Mohl, to credit Steve in the paper?

That's so cheap.

As I wrote on my blog in the comments of this post, Bruce acknowledged via email that my email and others influenced his follow up article.

It would have been nice to be credited in his article.
