journalism, ONA

The “This is who I met at #ONA10” list.

First off, I have to say that I stole this idea from Craig Kanalley. It’s my second year going, and I just love the atmosphere of meeting other journalists who can talk nerdy with me. You are the people who enrich my experience as a journalist and remind me to keep the big picture in mind. So, thanks.

The list, part 1: The people I met at ONA, whether I’ve been following on Twitter for years or just started because of the conference. Note: If you’re near the bottom of this list, that means I’ve been following you the longest because I just went by who I was following on Twitter to put this together!
