Lamont’s source block (and journalism links for Nov. 20)

In “A new journalism experiment: Source blocks” , bookmarked by Adrian Monck (aka amonck), Ian Lamont says that he has been “conducting an experiment on The Industry Standard since late October. After each story that I write, I add a short block of text that identifies all of the sources I used to conduct research.”
