Imagine this? Me with all the biggies!

This is turning out to be a pretty big travel month for me. I’m headed to San Francisco this week for client stuff and renew some acquaintences. Next week, it’s Palm Beach, Florida, where my dog-n-pony show will be presented to another broadcast group. But the big event of the month is on the 28th.

I’m going to be a part of a panel at the Museum of Television and Radio in New York. We’re talking about The Intersection of Blogging and Mainstream News and the group is pretty impressive.

  1. In line with your upcoming NY roundtable conversation, I thought you might want to see Merrill Brown’s essay called “I Webbed The News today — oh Boy!” which appeared yesterday. (I had difficulties posting a hotlink, so here’s the URL):
