Annals of Communications: Critical Mass: Reporting & Essays: The New Yorker

Interesting snapshot of Walt Mossberg's background and current pulpit 

Mossberg’s “Personal Technology” column, which anchors the front of the Journal’s Thursday Marketplace section, is particularly powerful when it comes to judging innovation intended for the consumer market. The opening sentence of his inaugural column, sixteen years ago, was “Personal computers are just too hard to use, and it’s not your fault,” a sentence that Mossberg has since described as his “mission statement.”
