Here's a New Year's resolution I'd like to see made, and kept, by all tech journalists:
Report first, then think, then write. Don't skip the first two steps, and don't get them out of order.
Computer, networking and mobile technology is changing all of human society. Journalism about tech is important. But tech journalism today is a vast wasteland of plagiarism, rumormongering, empty snark, fanboiism, trolling, unfounded assumptions and whole-cloth invention.
