Jourveloper? Progournalist? Hacker-Journalist? What title should we use?
Here’s an open-ended question for you all: How should folks working in this particular niche of journalism refer to themselves? I’ve never liked hyphenated titles like “hacker-journalist” or “programmer-journalist”… But “developer” or “software engineer” isn’t right, and neither is just plain “reporter” or “editor.”
UPDATE: After all the wild suggestions here and on the Idealab blog, I’m going to go ahead and declare a winner. News Applications Developer it is (icky plural and all).
(And I just discovered another quirk of this platform... You can't post unless your message has at least 15 characters...)
Taking a cue from the Washington Post, how about Web Ninjas?
