Actually, I think that people subscribe to LWN in large part because there's real tech
writing. The journalism is a good thing, too, of course, but I think that keeping your editor
writing documentation for 2-3 kernel features each week would be worth indulging his choice of
business even if it weren't beneficial on its own merits. On the other hand, I think that LWN
is in a better position to do good journalism because it has an secure value in the technical
articles independent of the popularity of the news it reports.
