It's interesting. Om Malik was the first one to call me up when the news started breaking. I never returned the call and I owe him one on that score. Om, though, is a great journalist. He called.
Bloggers rarely call before writing. It's something I hope we can change. Call before running the story. It's what great journalists do.
Oh, and there's a rumor going around about Om. I haven't talked with him yet about that rumor so I'm not going to repeat that story until I see him post a confirmation.
Update: Kevin Murphy wonders if that'll do more harm than good. He has visions of having hundreds, or thousands of bloggers calling. Oh, no, that's not what I'm saying. Only people who are breaking stories need to call. In my case that would have been only a handful of people.
