A CQ-DC Working Vacation

I will be taking a working vacation, so to speak, the first week of July in Washington, DC. Neither the First Mate nor I have ever been to DC before, and thanks to some clever timing and some excellent rates, we have decided to celebrate Independence Day in our first visit to our nation's Capitol.

The clever timing comes courtesy of the Heritage Foundation. I have been invited to give a speech at Heritage on my experiences covering the Canadian Adscam scandal as part of a review of blogs and their impact on media and politics. The other participants in the panel have yet to be finalized, but Jim Hill, managing editor of the Washington Post Writers Group, will be among them.

Mark Tapscott, of Tapscott's Copy Desk, is the Director of the Center for Media and Public Policy at Heritage and extended the invitation. More information will come directly from Heritage later this month, but the date will either be the 8th of July, at 10:30 AM. Mark's hoping to get C-SPAN to cover the event, but in any case Heritage will probably blogcast it over its website and keep it posted there for later viewing.

While I'm in DC, I'm also hoping to catch up with bloggers and other media people with whom I've corresponded in the past, in between gawking at the Declaration of Independence and walking along the Mall. Drop me a line if you're in the area and maybe we'll schedule a dinner in order to make it easy for everyone to get together.

This should be a memorable vacation ... and yes, I plan on bringing the laptop along to blog on events while I'm away.

BUMP: To top.
