How to Cite a Blog

Here’s a sign of the times, the NIH provides a style guide on how to cite a blog.  Bizarrely, however, they include a space for "Place of Publication."  It’s annoying enough that book citations require a location for the publisher – does anyone use this?  Ever?  We should not carry wasteful practices to the web.

Still, the idea that blogs can and should be cited is nice to see.  The bottom line?  Two r’s in Tabarrok.

Hat tip to Boing Boing Blog.
