I'm not a journalist but I've been surrounded by them for the past day and will be again today at Capitolbeat 2008 a national conference of statehouse reporters and editors being held in Raleigh. This afternoon, in the graveyard shift of conferences, just before happy hour, I'll be on a panel called "Ask a Blogger". The good news is that this session will be in a bar. The bad news is that I'll be a blogger surrounded by journalists in a bar. So to turn the tables and to allow for an exchange of information I want to give you an opportunity to "Ask a Journalist" all those burning questions about the mainstream media.
I'll be posting short updates on Twitter all day and will be checking back here during the day. This is also an experiment in mobile blogging. I'm leaving my laptop behind and only using a phone to check in and post. So, leave your questions here and I'll keep checking until the session starts at 3.30pm.
