Apple rumours start to boil over before Macworld

by Warren

This January I’ll be going to Macworld for the first time ever, and I’ll finally get to see Uncle Steve’s medicine show in person. Macworld is traditionally when the biggest announcement of the year comes from Apple, though how they’ll top last year’s iPhone roll-out, I have no idea. However, that hasn’t stopped mad internet speculation from frothing up in in anticipation of new Apple goodies. The top contender is a sub-notebook, or possibly a tablet, built around the same technology as the iPhone. We’ll see…now that I’m doing a lot of video work, I’m more interested in upgrades to the Mac Pro than anything else.

Also, keep an eye on Techvibes while I’m at Macworld, because I’ll be blogging for them throughout the week.

Are reporters doomed?

by Warren

The Guardian certainly thinks it’s a possibility. Citizen journalism, hyper-local reporting and other net-driven trends are making investigative journalists an increasingly rare breed. I’m a little conflicted on this, as I’ve got toes dipped in both the old and new media…..but newspapers, television and radio will have to adapt one way or the other.

New article at the Journal of Commerce

by Warren

As I make the transition from cubicle monkey to freelance writer (attractive rates, enquire within!), I’ve decided it makes sense to showcase some of my published work when it shows up online. Here’s a story I wrote for the Journal of Commerce last week about the push and pull between developers, city planners and urban advocates regarding the height of skyscrapers in downtown Vancouver.
