I’m nervous, overwhelmed and excited to be an official blogger at the ASNE annual conference (American Society of News Editors). Due to schedule limitations, I’m only blogging Tuesday morning, but the panel looks fantastic. Arianna Huffington and Jim Brady are among the many prominent thinkers of journalism today and will be speaking. I’ll be tweeting, uploading photos, interviewing and live blogging during the event.
