Feeling slack - a weeklong workshop and the end of first-session summer school kept me away from the keyboard. A timely reminder got me started again - thanks!
I've mentioned the ConvergeSouth program being sponsored by N.C. A&T and the Greensboro blogging community this fall. I'm working on the Friday sessions, where we are planning three tracks aimed at journalists and educators.
The first deals with mechanics: How to Blog, Wikipedia, Where's the Business Model Going?
The second (running concurrently, 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m.) will focus on journalistic principles: Who Owns the Words, The Future of Journalism and Ethics: What Are the Rules?
The third concurrent track will consider community: Adding More Voices to the Conversation, Blogging and Community-Building and Voices of Iraq: Journalist/Military.
There will be an evening dinner and speaker TBA. On Saturday, the conference will shift to a more free-ranging discussion, with creativity at the center both in the program and the entertainment that evening.
That's it in a nutshell, a still-evolving life form.

I look forward to Converge and expect to reap a lot of value from it.
