Into thin Air

    Does anyone know how this Into Thin Air website works?

    I recently had a story about a junior olympic national decathlon champion and a parent e-mailed me saying how nice it was that my story made it onto an international site. Needless to say it was the first I had heard of it. I never received a request from the site to reprint the story and photo.

    I'm fired up to contact them and demand freelance payment, but wondered if I may be missing something?

    I've read Krakauer's Outside article and the book by that name, but I've never heard of that website.

    Anyway, it appears to be a personal BLOG! that copies-and-pastes articles. You should have your SE or ME or publisher or even the newspaper's attorney send a cease-and-desist to the site. They do put a link to the original source of the stories, but C&P-ing the whole thing is a copyright violation.

    All websites are international.

    The point was that the focus of this site is international track and field, so there's a collection of stories on here from all over the world. It's not focused only on US track and field or Northwest High School sports, etc.
