Why Tuesday?

Get Involved

Live from the NetJ conference

Wednesday, October 10th, 2007


Greetings from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism where Barnett and I are attending Jeff Jarvis’ Networked Journalism Summit. Many friends of WT? are also attending, including the peeps from PDF/techPresident, Rocketboom, and OffTheBus. Also, our Twitter friends Ryan Sholin, Anil Dash and Dave Winer are here. I haven’t seen them yet but have seen them Twittering! Where are you guys?!

Jay Rosen of NYU, second from right in the photo, gave some great remarks about what he learned from the Assignment Zero project, which Barnett and I found to be very applicable to what we’re doing here. Jay has also posted those lessons on his blog, so check them out.

I think weekend voting would make the most sense, as people wouldn't have tu run home after work or wake up early to hit the polling stations beforehand.
