Corrections and accountability

Lawrence Lessig has a post on his blog that raises an interesting question: How do journalists handle errors and corrections?

He outlines a scenario that highlights a flaw in the editorial process and lends credibility to the self-correcting culture of blogs.

If traditional journalism is to maintain the credibility it enjoys, those of us working in the field need to back up our words with action by being as accurate as we like to think we always are -- and claim to be -- and correct mistakes promptly.

Places to eat? L.A.

Going to Los Angeles. Anyone have recommendations for a decent nosh downtown?

(This one has absolutely nothing to do with the blog's subjects, but it's my blog so I'm posting it anyway.)

Places to eat? Winnipeg

As previously mentioned, I'm heading to Winnipeg for the Canadian Association of Journalists conference to present some sessions on blogs and journalism.

So, where are some good places to eat downtown in the Peg?

(OK, this is a stretch for this blog's subject areas, but the reason I'm going there is a perfect match ... and a guy's gotta eat.)
