Seems like only seven years ago, in blog time

It seems like only seven years ago (September, 2005, to be precise) when, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and the journalism flowing from a hastily set up blog at, Jeff Jarvis and I were blogging about what a pity it was the Pulitzer Prize committee didn’t consider online-only content in awarding prizes.

I thought about that when I learned today, the Pulitzer Prize for national reporting was awarded to the Huffington Post and the Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning was awarded to Politico.
