There’s more wisdom on the deep linking issue from Scott Rosenberg today in Salon, although this story is more of a “cover all the bases” piece than a focused argument. My personal views on this issue fall into “a link is a citation” category, and thus deep linking is perfectly fair game. (I don’t feel the same way about people linking directly to images or multimedia files on other sites, especially presenting them inline on your own pages, you should get permission before you do that.)
