The "Gnats of Cyberspace"

Next Tuesday evening, the Society of Professional Journalists-Virginia Pro Chapter and the University of Richmond Journalism Program will hear from an array of bloggers on journalism, blogging and how the two get along.

Featured speakers include some top-notch folks: Jim Bacon, Jon Baliles, Conaway Haskins, John Sarvay and the semi-retired Chad Dotson. I'll be there, too (someone has to bring the chips).

Thanks to Style Weekly's Jason Roop for pulling this together.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns

"Don't pretend that you know me...cause I don't even know myself" -- The Who
