First Rule Of Journalism

Damn journalists.

Two months ago, I wrote “First Rule Of Homebrew Drone Club.”

Drones are the next revolution, the next insanely great thing, the pirate, the multi-billion dollar business.

If I were the next Steve Jobs, I would dream of drones. If I were the next Bill Gates, I would envision software empowering drones built on every kitchen table.

You were not part of the original Homebrew Computer Club. You’ve just been given a second chance.

Yesterday, and without crediting me at all, AP’s Scott Mayerowitz wrote “Drone Market Resembles Silicon Valley’s Early Days.”

In many ways, the nascent drone industry looks a lot like the personal computer industry did in its infancy. The money to fuel development is coming largely from entrepreneurs’ own checkbooks.

Damn journalists.
