Quick Bytes: Walt Mossberg

As teachers and technology users, we all are consumers at some level, deciding what to purchase based on a vision for what a particular technology can provide. Reviews can be a great help in deciding.

Walt Mossberg, a technology for the Wall Street Journal, is known as the most powerful voice in technology writing, producing reviews with the average user in mind.

Fortunately for us, unlike most of the Journal (which is only available via paid subscription), all of his columns and video podcasts are available on a website:

Actually, my favorite posting is his ethics statement. From the presence of such an exhaustive (and wonderfully written) statement, one can deduce that many technology writers do not adhere to the same standards, which would be a serious problem in my mind.
