I’ll be at tomorrow’s Networked Journalism Summit in beautiful scenic midtown Mannahatta tomorrow, completely amazed at the level of talent, skill and intelligence that will be around.
I plan to stare slackjawed at y’all like the upcountry yokel I am.
That’s not exactly true. I’m sure I’ll find something to talk about.
But I am particularly excited to hang around folks from all corners of the MSM/blog/citizen-journalism world. Here’s a list of 56 write-ups of attendees, and here’s the full list of people expected to show their mugs.
It’s hard to cherrypick names from the list and say ‘Darn, I sure hope I get a chance to talk with ______,’ but if it gives me a leg up and reminds them of who I am when they spot my name tag tomorrow, let’s just throw a few names out there:
- Dwight Silverman of the Houston Chronicle
- Dan Pacheco of Bakersfield.com
- Lisa Williams of H20Town
- Derek Willis of the Washington Post
- Rick Burnes of FMAtlas
- and of course, the hosts, Jeff Jarvis of BuzzMachine and David Cohn of ‘OMG I can’t believe we still have to write a thesis after all this.’ 😉
Track me down, send a Tweet @gort581, leave a comment here, find me on Facebook, or just look for the guy with the, uh, gray shirt, and glasses, and hair. Yeah, I’ll just find a sharpie and write my URL on my forehead or something. We’ll chat. It’ll be fun.

Good news though. My thesis done did got turned in. I’m free!!!!! (Mostly at least — i’ll tell you more tomorrow).
Looking forward to finally meeting.
Crap. Good for you. Now I’ll really start feeling the pressure…
I wish I could go. Either or would be find for me, I’ve never been to New York or a journalist’s convention. All of the anime, comic book, and horror conventions have eaten into my professional networking budget. But, they’ve all led to interesting clips.
