I just got back from Baton Rouge, where I gave a presentation on blogging to the first-ever class of the Louisiana Chapter of the New Leaders Council. See:

I had a great time, and I am really proud of the class we put together. They are an exceptional group of young leaders, and I have no doubt that they will continue to make a difference in Louisiana for many years to come.

A special thanks as well to those Louisiana bloggers who unknowingly contributed to the conversation: Oyster at Your Right Hand Thief, Jeffrey at Library Chronicles, Dambala at the American Zombie, and the stellar teams at both Humid Beings and the Lens. At the very least, I hope I scored you all a few more dedicated readers and maybe even some new contributors.

  1. Thanks Eli. I really wanted to put together a panel and have you speak as well, but the session got bumped up a month. There’s always next year.

    And by the way, you guys are doing tremendously great work at the Lens.

  2. Are you two going to kiss?

    Lamar, can you light a fire under those bright, young, folk’s butts to start digging into state contracts? I know PBJ swears we have the best ethics laws in the nation, but forgive me if I don’t take him on his word.

    I would love to see some hard core, pissed off, investigative blogging in B.R. A good place to start would be with the DOTD.

    good work, sir.

  3. Hahahaha…

    I think, soon enough, we will be discussing vetting, researching, and navigating state databases and public records.

    Maybe you could provide some insight.
