Heritage Foundation Event Recap

As many of you already know, I went to DC this week for both vacation and work, having scheduled an appearance at the Heritage Foundation to speak on blogging, journalism, and the intersection between the two. While I have regaled you with various adventures of our vacation, including my sudden lack of geographical comprehension, this event has remained my central focus this week.

Mark Tapscott set up the panel discussion, with Jim Hill, the managing editor of the Washington Post Writers Group, and Daniel Glover from the National Journal, who now edits their Beltway Blogroll column. We had a lively presentation, I believe, on the issues facing journalists and bloggers in this new market for information dissemination, followed by a thoroughly enjoyable Q&A session afterwards. Post columnist E.J. Dionne joined us in person and tossed out a couple of tough and interesting questions. Mary Katherine Ham from Townhall blogged the event.

A number of bloggers also came for the presentation. Matt Sheffield from Ratherbiased gets in the photo with me, while Mike Marshall and Michael Calderon got some good questions to the panel. We got together the night before with a few of the bloggers, including Daniel Glover and Mike Marshall:

Many thanks to all those who came last night and/or today to meet me and take in the panel discussion, and especially to Mark Tapscott and my co-panelists for making this happen. If you watched it on the Heritage Foundation's live-stream video, I'd love to get your comments. If you missed it, I'm told it will be posted by tomorrow. I will post the link when it goes live.
