Joe Wilcox is a unbelievable source of information.  He has been online since 1993 and has researched and written about technology news for a number of publications including at CNet,  the Microsoft Watch Blog, the Apple Watch Blog and currently freelances for Betanews. He has appeared on CNBC, Fox News, MSNBC, NPR, PBS and others discussing technology and its related cultural and business impact. I was really happy to get his ear for a few minutes and get a true technology insider's view of Gizmodo's storytelling and ramifications for bloggers of the iPhone 4G leak.  We also discussed the changing face of blogging and media, as well as a journalist's perspective on a variety of issues facing bloggers today.  Some of the issues we covered include:
  • Are bloggers journalists?
  • The dramatic transformation that has happened in the last four years with the way people get and share information
  • The Google economy
  • Mob Journalism
  • The changing face of news and how news is gathered
  • The Gizmodo iPhone 4G "incident" - step by step exactly what happened
  • Why Gizmodo's storytelling was exceptional
  • What bloggers can take away from Gizmodo's editorial process
  • Why blogger's should be cautious - and how they may be more at risk than journalists at a news organization
  • A discussion on blogging disclosures and credibility issues
  • Privacy - and who owns what you write?
