[Sca-Cooks] Quality of the new T.I.

I found the quality of the old TI as bad as the current TI mainly because 
the editors in both cases lack the specialized knowledge to adequately 
distinguish between superior quality and trash.  In such a case, quality is 
dependent upon the author.  From the editing, I am fairly certain thay have 
no experience with journalistic review and I have reservations about their 
experience with editing for publication.

There is nothing that says articles can't be well written, accurate and 
interesting, for "geeks" as well as the less discriminating reader.  But in 
the case of TI, it's obviously going to take a little work.  Whether or not 
the editors of TI are up to the task is the question.
