Editorial I think I'd like to start an internet movement. Due to Apple's recent actions regarding the Google Voice app, I intend to criticize Apple every day at OSNews for 1984 days, or until they perform a very subtle and simple act of contrition. I'd like to enlist the help of every tech journalist, blogger, twitterer, Facebook denizen, and person who ever talks to another person. I'm that girl in the running shorts with the hammer, people! I'm throwing the hammer at the big creepy guy on the screen! We don't have to be slaves anymore! Read on for the full manifesto.

David, the impulse is right but the idea of execution isn't.

Start an own site, which does not cross the boundary of uh, well... fair journalism, and do it there. Don't do it on OSnews. Don't do it on a personal blog (it will seem like personal vendetta against evil Apple and will diminish the effect). Make it a highly collaborable (is that a word?) site, allow people to post articles maybe on something like a wiki, allow multiple people to work on them, then select them, and post them on a newsfeed.

Again, don't do it here. It will highly lower the value of both OSnews, and your own plan just as well.

PS: You could even start a site like OSnews, but more critical, and not limited to Apple. Who knows, maybe this kind of journalism suits you (not ironic). Call it "Core Access", and post stuff with the shameless observational attitude of BuzzFeed, and the rigorosity of NASA's Mars lander engineers.
