“Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it.” - Steve Jobs

Wired News: Wired News Releases Source Review … Is this a good thing?

A recent article in Wired News is a review of one of their freelance writer’s articles over the last 5 years.

On the one hand, I think taking responsibility for what they publish in this proactive way is a good thing and quite honestly better than the “retractions” by MIT and InfoWorld of the same author, but I wonder if we are not becoming to discriminating. To be honest, I have no idea what too much means, but something about this feels less about finding the truth and more about not becoming another Dan Rather or NY Times.

Can we ever be 100% confident in our news sources? Should we be? Speak up if you are interested.
