I’m supposed to be getting ready to head for Washington for the Media Giraffe "Journalism that Matters" seminar but the doctor nixed that travel today after examining my still broken but apparently healing, foot.

He says the foot cannot handle five hours of driving each way plus sitting and standing in a seminar that runs from 1 p.m. Tuesday through 6 p.m. Wednesday with few breaks.

Damn. I was looking forward to working with fellow online professionals on examining the future of journalism in a digital world.

Oh well. I have plenty of work here. Court tomorrow and a database problem that led to more than half the archives from this site not transferring to the new site. I’ll have time to deal with that and, hopefully, solve it.
