Citizen journalism

A blogger hero of mine, Jeff Jarvis, has given me a nice shout out for my visit with the President post. I must say that I was thinking of Jeff and his moving accounts of how September 11 changed him when I was preparing for the meeting. No lie. Also, I did feel like (and while some of you will get this, non-bloggers will think it ridiculous) I had an obligation to other bloggers to record as much of my personal point-of-view of the experience as I could. I know we all disagree on where we stand on the issues and how we perceive President Bush, but I felt even his detractors would appreciate a blogger-version of the experience.
