Could this be any more fun?
The first day of the conference is going great. I've learned quite a bit already -- but mostly about how charismatic copy editors can be. (In addition to being a fantastic dresser, John McIntyre is also a fantastic speaker.)
I've been to one session so far, on how to deal with different problem personalities in the newsroom. Up next: the famous "Rules that aren't" from Bill Walsh, I think.
But it's true: My biggest complaint about the conference will be too much good stuff to choose from. Every time I decide for one, I'm deciding against another. 'Tis a pity.
Headline winners were announced this morning. I'll try to get a list of those to post. (Off the top of my head, I know the New York Times won the staff portfolio award, with the Tampa Tribune coming in second.)
More to come!
