The perils of the world.. and er, videojournalism

A global economy on the brink of a recession kicked off by the US.

Does anyone remember Reaganomics - now that was something?

LA times Editor is sacked because the ed refused to comply with staff cuts.

Gaza's power supply is cut off.

And in the race for the Whitehouse the exchange between Obama and Clinton is about to heat up.

By the way, I hope to have my friend and radio host - one of the longest serving in New York, Mark Jack Riley online to talk about what's going on and what he's detected real soon.

So I was going to talk about perils and videojournalism, a subject that people/execs don't like discussing, but I'll save that for another time.

Back on View - a hommage to Bourne is in the making, with no deadly violence.

The L.A. Times piece really struck a note with me - it took alot of guts for Dean Baquet to stand his ground and he paid for it. I'm curious to see what you perceive this realm of budget cuts in print pubs is going to force us Solo VJ's looking to the web as part of our salvation in this 'ism of VJ. There is a fair amount of anxiety for those of us who have jumped in with both feet into this profession.

Looking forward to finally meeting you this May along with Robb Montgomery for the Advanced Web Video Journalism Workshop at VizEds in Chicago.

Cheers mate :)
