Source Code and Tech Reporting

I don’t get how you write a story about Google’s new code search engine and not mention Koders and Krugle, the two existing players in the space.

I worry that we are drifting into press release reporting in the tech journalism world and last time that happened the boom busted.

I’m not looking for hardcore investigative reporting here. Just a quick search using the company you’re writing about will do.

(Notice google advertising their own code search on the results pages for code search. Makes it tough for others on the seo front.)

Concentration is important!
