One key point from the pre-convention catalytic conversation yesterday between Amy Penwell and me: there’s a huge need for folks in the education establishment in general, and journalism and library science in particular, to impart the critical thinking skills that will enable consumers of information to sort out (reliably) the credible from the non-credible. An aside (and this comes from me, not from the conversation with Amy): I’ve just finished with the Lucas Cioffi video, and my conception of what journalism (even the ”reinvented journalism” — whatever that turns out to be) can and should be/do is about 180 degrees different from his. I look forward to exploring that difference of opinion nin Cambridge. (No time for more just now, and I’m just enough of Luddite that I much prefer direct to online conversations, anyway.)
