AP Finally Lands in 1995

July 22, 2011 12:29:13.606

TechDirt notes that the AP has finally figured out that - make sure you're sitting now - links are useful things. It'll be another decade or three before they learn how to use them though...

Well, look at that. The Associated Press has reached 1993 or so, and realized that they can (and probably should) link to other sites when reporting on a story that those other sites reported first. Of course, they're still learning some of HTML's features, such as the idea that you can link to actual words in a story. Instead, they'll be putting the links (via Bitly) in parentheses right after they cite the source.
