The next episode of "Lunduke & Whatnot (with Matt)" is, as my British friends like to say, going to be a corker. We've got an awesome line-up scheduled for a round-table discussion on the state of Tech Journalism in 2016.

Joining +Matt Hartley and myself -- on Monday -- will be +Rikki Endsley (+Red Hat, +Opensource.com), +Steven Vaughan-Nichols (+ZDNet), +Whitson Gordon (+How-To Geek), and [fingers crossed he can make it] +jack wallen (+TechRepublic).
