My ONA10 lineup – stalk me!


Tomorrow I get on a bus to Washington D.C. for the Online News Association Conference. I had the good luck to be a volunteer on the livestreaming team, so I’ll be producing the livestreams at a whole bunch of sessions on Thursday and Friday. On Saturday I get to take off my volunteer hat and act like a normal attendee.
