Photo by the lovely and talented Insta-WifeLAST NIGHT I went to a program at the Knoxville News-Sentinel’s offices by the Society of Professional Journalists. The topic, naturally enough, was blogs and media. Helen came along — for us, this counted as a romantic night out. Yes, we are geeks.

Other participants have already blogged it, so you can read accounts from Randy “SKBubba” Neal (pictured with me to the right), and Bob Stepno. I learned from News Sentinel editor Jack McElroy that they’ll be distributing cheap digital video cameras to their reporters, to add web video content to their stories. I think that’s an excellent idea.
