An SJSU student is one of 30 from around the country tapped for Gannett’s information center training program. That’s frigging awesome. I totally forgive her for putting that statue in the Daily’s masthead now.

The interns in Spokane are doing the group-blog thing. This one is a little less anonymous and more informative than others I’ve seen, but with less gossip. Too bad about that, but it’s still worth reading, especially if you’re a student.
Yeah, so I’m not writing about my internship.
Not sure if that seems right or wrong yet, but I think I’ll stick with that decision.
I’ll probably post a debriefing when it’s over, and I still reserve the right to some subtle self-promotion when I make the front page, but it just seems, well, unsubtle to talk about what I’m learning about the newspaper business while I’m busy trying to get some stories published. But yes, I’m certainly paying attention. That’s what I do. If you’re interested in keeping up with what I’m writing, let me know, and I’ll let you know when my stories run. Otherwise you can wait until I post links to everything on the Other Writing page at the end of the gig.
