    It's a good coverage piece of a lecture he gave at Columbia last night.

    What's of interest to me, because it's a discussion we've had a lot lately, is down toward the bottom: Why would you stay in this business, or get into it, based on the way things are. He repeats what I've been saying -- perhaps too hopefully so -- that there's going to be places to work and make a living and have the fun we all used to have in the Golden Age. The work we do is just going to be delivered differently, and perhaps in ways we haven't even thought of yet.

    I think I can sum up his lecture in one (made-up) quote:

    "I think the future of online journalism is lots of reporters doing things, but I'm not sure what those things are and I don't know how it's going to be paid for."
