The late, great, Potomac Tech Journal
We used to have a terrific local tech weekly called Potomac Tech Journal. It folded after the Dot.com crash. No other publication, before or since, had done as a good a job of covering the commerical side of Potomac Tech culture. The government contracting sector is well covered, mergers & acquisitions are covered, but technology trends in the commercial sector are currently ignored.
Tech journalism is under a great deal of stress and bad news for tech reporters is bad news for tech flacks. I wrote an article for The Daily Dog about the problems faced by content providers, and why this is a problem for our industry as well as society. It should run sometime in the next few weeks.
