Gnome In the item we ran yesterday about GNOME and the GNU Project, one aspect got snowed under a little bit. It turns out a claim made in the iTWire article about the role a blog post by Miguel De Icaza was false, and even though the claim wasn't ours, I did repeat it, and therefore, should correct it too. I also need to offer apologies for not framing the opening of the article clear enough - had I framed it better, a lot of pointless discussion and name-calling could've been avoided.

I'm not a journalist, I'm a blogger. On top of that, if "having a clue about journalism" means standing by claims even though you personally believe them to be nonsense, the I'd rather NOT have a clue about journalism.


Yeah, it's convenient to switch on the blogger switch when things get nasty isn't it. Again, from your so called "Clean Slate".

"OSNews is not Thom's blog

With just me doing the longer items, OSNews was moving dangerously close to just me spouting opinions, which is of course not desirable. That's why from the moment I started doing the longer items, I started a very strong push towards getting more dedicated editors on board, with opinions that differ from my own, so that they can bring balance to the site as a whole."

That sounds to me like you are trying to become editor of a few writers. Hell, you don't even call yourself a blogger on your Profile page:

"Title: Managing editor"
