The first post

24Jul08

I’m finally starting a personal blog. I don’t mean to be so late to the whole blogging thing, but I’ve been tied up writing for the past 12 years at the AP, on the run across the world. Now that I’m heading on a fellowship at Stanford for a year of contemplation, learning and just taking a breather from it all, I want to have a place to express myself. I have some ideas about new media, journalism and international affairs and this will be a forum for that. I also want to liberate my writing voice from the constraints of AP style. It may take a while to work that out of my system.

    Hi Burt, looking forward to your posts. Twelve years of foreign correspondence experience plus an insight into new media at Stanford/Silicon Valley sounds like a great recipe for insights into the future of journalism.
