High Tech Cheating Remember when cheating on a writing assignment meant turning in a friend's paper from the previous semester?
No more, alas. Technology isn't just for limiting the quantity of shampoo you can carry on a plane or sending speeding tickets from a highway-cam. Now your "original" piece of literature can be scanned by "Plagiarism Prevention" software, such as TurnItIn (www.turnitin.com).

According to their website - Every paper submitted is returned in the form of a customized Originality Report. Results are based on exhaustive searches of billions of pages from both current and archived instances of the internet, millions of student papers previously submitted to Turnitin, and commercial databases of journal articles and periodicals.

Contact 2600 Magazine. I'm sure they have a clever work-around.
