On Monday the Tech editor and I will pitch the blog column idea to the top editor of the International Herald Tribune.
Great suggestions when we discussed it here earlier.
The Column: Of about 700 words will appear occasionally (until we can be sure quality is high enough) in the tech pages of the newspaper.
The Title: Lessons Learned; Digital Conversation; Any other ideas? (Actually, any other ideas might be a good name!)
The Form: Could be broken into three sections of roughly 200 words or one long column if interesting enough.
The Content: Would come from you. Best, I think, to ask people to submit 100 words on a given topic. That would enforce tight writing and avoid the impossible task of trying to summarize a blog discussion. People could submit multiple items, but none longer.
The Ideas: Would come from you. But the topic would need to stay relevant to the issue of technology, since that is where the column appears.
Any thoughts? I need a strong pitch for Monday morning!!!
