Here’s a clip from tomorrow’s Wall Street Journal, from a story titled Meet the Bloggers (link appears not to require registration):
Peter Rukavina, 38, computer programmer, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Reinvented. Describe your blog. Comment, opinion and news about local and national issues, technology, and everyday life. How do you plan to cover the convention? What kind of content can readers expect? I am interested in the convention as a theatrical event and as a large public gathering as much as I’m interested in the political ramifications. As such, my readers can expect reporting on the technical and logistical minutiae, on how the convention is covered by the mainstream media, etc. Why should people read your coverage? I hope they share my approach to the world, enjoy my writing, and want to learn more about how events like this work. What’s the biggest gap in convention coverage by mainstream media in prior election years? Haven’t been involved enough — as a distant Canadian — to know. Moment/speaker/event you’re most looking forward to covering. Jimmy Carter. Whom did you support in the Democratic primary? Howard Dean.
In one fell swoop I give away my age and my political inclinations to the nation.
I won’t compare and contrast what they printed with what I answered, as they didn’t cut anything.
The photo in the article is a self-portrait taken poolside at the aiport Hampton Inn in Phoenix, New Mexico. I’m talking to Oliver on my cell phone.
