Writing a book does not make you a journalist. It makes you an author. Not that it's not impressive, but it's not proof of experience as a journalist.

They are different jobs. You can write a book without doing any investigative reporting, but it would be hard for a journalist to do so. Siraj Raval might be a published author, but he still has next to no experience being a journalist.

Here's the link in case anyone is interested:

Fowler has probably received a letter from an Uber hired lawyer asking her to take down the blog and threatening to sue her for damages.

Why else would she hire a lawyer? I see no other reason why she would hire a lawyer except to respond to a scary letter on scary letterhead that was probably personally served to her doorstep. (Which alone is a horrible experience one wishes on no one.)

Everyone, buy that Microservices book!

(I grabbed the link directly from Fowler's blog in case it includes any affiliate juice for her.)
