One of the biggest threats facing us isn't the deludge of new applications and hardware tools on the market; all of which I'd play around with if I had the chance, or even the trend-to-dismiss web 2.0, but the mindset that predetermines how we perceive what we do.

Be allowed to experiment. Be Allowed to fail. For it is only through our flaws that we learn. It is only by falling off the bike that our parents put us back on. And by failing and falling, we learn not to repeat our mistakes and with any luck and great humulity we appreciate the generous offerings of others. Learning not to fail, by failing is good.
Learn not to stand still; that your view is just as important. That somewhere beyond the horizon is a new paradigm for a multi-modal, multi media journalist and that whilst we may not ultimately get there, we'll try our damnest to find out what it is by heading off swifty in that direction.
