Bienvenidos a Miami

I'm in Florida for the ACES conference. Please take the time to say hi if you're here!

Doug Fisher and I will be presenting a session on "blogging for editors" tomorrow afternoon, and I fully expect someone to take me to task for not having blogged lately. I'll try to make up for that by posting here and at the conference blog (which should get going shortly).

Now off for a beer ...

I'm interested in some expansion on some of the things mentioned in the blog.

For example, I'm dying to know why copy editors' work will be outsourced if they don't fit into some pigeonhole description. I await the "proof" for that one.

You have some pretty decent links here for copy editors, but I'm really glad I stopped by your booklist at Library Thing. Funny stuff -- you should headline it "diversions." It's like every book you've ever pawed, mostly titles assigned to you in gen-ed college courses, cookbooks, Harry Potter books and guides to poker. I guess they'll let anyone on the editorial board over at the Dallas Morning News these days. Lightweight.

Manners, manners.

That's not the first rude thing that "anonymous" dude has written. I see him everywhere, and he's done far worse.

Nicole, I hope you'll consider posting good writing and editing stuff you picked up at the conference.

I hope so, too. I'd be very interested in knowing what handy tips ACES passes along. So far, I've just seen dinosaurs at declining papers rambling about outsourcing and copy editors saying they'll allow their job descriptions to be twisted into virtually anything.

Doesn't sound like such a great seminar to me.

Come on, Nicole. Time's a-wastin'. Give us the good stuff.

Yeah, especially the part where the aging editor of the declining newspaper says: "Newspapers have always made mistakes, so we should just accept the current, high level of errors." I know that's an attitude to develop in the younger generation.
