In praise of "internalization"

Computer programmers, especially the not-so-fortunate ones, are condemned to life of monotonous coding, the key to which lies in three strategically located keys - Ctrl, C and V.

"So, which project are you working for?"
"ABC-ZYX, Inc."
"Oh, that Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V thing? Poor you!"
Well, not any longer. We are all "internalizing" - the fine art of looking too much into something, and then deciding to pass it off as our own. Many thanks to Kaavya Viswanathan, our deliverer! You made us discover ourselves!

@jvpoirot: Hi. just before we clarify what has happened let's not brand the girl as a felony or speculate who's work she going to copy next. Mistakes develop character.

@Poirot: Thanks.

@Subro: I'm sure she is much better than that. But the odds are overwhelmingly against her. In any case, we can't rob a bank, in order to develop character, can we?

hi subro

i meant that since she has already finished her second book and wrote both at the same time , she must have taken things easy and would not have thought that someone would find out her cheating.
thst's why...
