NetSlaves.com: The Failure of Tech JournalismAug 29, 2001, 14:18 (47 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Steve Gilliard)
Read initially for personal curiosity, the article gets around to (and aims a few barbs at) advocacy sites before moving on to broadsides against just about every other facet of tech journalism, including fawning Windows reviews and the cursory consideration given the worst abuses of the dot-coms:
"Well, two Mexican engineers tried "the Linux can be used by anyone" solution and well, nobody knew what the heck to do with it. They were shocked that they couldn't magically deploy Linux and have the masses use it. Well, if you drop TV dinners over New Guinea, you'll kill people because the food will go bad because they will eat the melted, rotting food long before they get the microwaves to cook it.Readers sensitive to profanity will want to approach this item with care.
