More than 130 people have signed up for today's Triangle Bloggers Conference at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. I'll be leading one of the sessions with Paul Jones, who runs the ibiblio.org project, a massive digital library.
Last night's dinner included one of the people I admire most in the journalism field, Phil Meyer. A professor here, he recently published an important book, The Vanishing Newspaper: Saving Journalism in the Information Age. If you care about the future of a craft that makes a difference -- or should -- in our society, pick up a copy.
Tomorrow I'll pay a call on the News & Record, a newspaper in nearby Greensboro. The N&R, you may recall, is doing some serious citizen journalism, and I'm looking forward to learning more.
And on Monday, I'll visit one of Paul's classes before giving a public lecture on the usual topic.
