Pretty much everything Mike Masnick writes is great, but this one is particularly good and thought-provoking. Well worth a read if you are still wondering how content-creators will succeed in the the new digital world.

A very good in-depth article on the Swartz case. Makes the whole thing even more questionable, imo.
Since the July 19th indictment of Aaron Swartz for surreptitiously whooshing nearly five million JSTOR documents onto a laptop concealed in an MIT network closet, there's been a lot of codswallop writ...

It's kind of embarrassing how perfectly this video and Chuck Klosterman article speak to me. We really are nothing more than a specific demographic, aren't we. ;)

Good thoughts!

6 ways tech news writing can add value

1. Be the first people hear about something from
2. Explain how something works or what something means particularly well
3. Put things in a helpful context, like a historical context or a particular perspective that's valuable to read about
4. Synthesize other people's perspectives on something well
5. Be funny.
6. Point out how information can be used by readers in their own lives.

I think online news should always strive to add at least one of those types of value. I think it too often fails to do so. What other types of value do you think can be added when writing about tech news?

Saw an entire wall of Duff/Charm City Cakes merchandise at Michael's. Genius.
