Closing Comments

At the conclusion of this year’s Teachapalooza, Al Tompkins gave one of the most moving talks about why what we – nearly 100 journalism educators – do is so important. He asked us all to close our eyes for a moment and almost all of us did. For Steve Fox and me, this place is like a religious experience.

This was the second (of four) things I did at Poynter this trip, two more events to teach and I’ll be on the road again. And counting down the days until we all return.
