— Discuss readings posted on the blog + Chapter 1
— Lab: Editing practice + Digital First exercise

*** And, identify an editor for the “Ask an editor” assignment. Ask them the following: 1) most challenging part of their job; 2) most satisfying part of their work; and 3) new opportunities they see in their work. (Let me know when they respond to you so we can discuss in class.)

Noteworthy event this week: MNA convention. Lots of programs that might be of interest. (NY Times media reporter David Carr keynote noon on Friday.)
