Feb. 10-12: St. Petersburg, Fla.

I flew into Tampa from Santo Domingo on Friday evening, then checked in to the St. Pete Hilton. Saturday is the semi-annual meeting of the Council of National Journalism Organizations.

SPJ Executive Director Terry Harper was there, so we met up in the bar and had drinks with Eric Newton of the Knight Foundation. We discussed journalismtraining.org, which SPJ created and manages for CNJO with Knight funding.

Saturday, we met all day at the Poynter Institute (Google map). CNJO includes the leaders of some 50 national journalism organizations from the obituarists to SPJ, IRE and NPPA.

After the meeting, I drove Terry to the Tampa airport and then joined other council members for dinner. The fare was Spanish at the Columbia Restuarant on the pier in St. Petersburg.

Sunday morning, I left early to drive home -- made it by noon.
