John Gruber on the relish with which tech journalism pours scorn on stuff:
There’s a nihilistic streak in tech journalism that I just don’t see in other fields. Sports, movies, cars, wristwatches, cameras, food — writers who cover these fields tend to celebrate, to relish, the best their fields have to offer. Technology, on the other hand, seems to attract enthusiasts with no actual enthusiasm.
John’s right – tech journalism rarely celebrate just how amazing technology is. We’re all too fast to pour scorn, to critique, to condemn. I’m hoping that in 2014, we’ll see less of this and more celebration. And that’s a good thought with which to start the eleventh year of this blog.
