At ONA today

Moderated a panel on blogging best practices at the Online News Association conference today that had good audience commenting and interaction (Hat tip to unconference guru Dave Winer).
Best moments:

  • exec Dick Meyer in the audience and asking for advice on improving the quality–and quantity– of commentators on The Public Eye, the (new) ombudsman blog–and getting advice from all over the room.
  • Spokesmanreview producer Ryan Pitt describing how he coaches the newsroom to get into blogging.
  • Lost Remote author and King TV maven Cory Bergman explaining that 10% of all staffers will get it right away–the rest need some help.
  • Jeff Jarvis reminding the audience–mostly newsies–that it’s about listening–and linking.

Back tomorrow –will post notes on any good stuff.
