Omar who shot the Lacy video!

The Statesman reporter who got Sarah Lacy's post-interview tantrum showed up at my latest panel.

He shot that with his own handheld camera. Did the editing on the spot. Re-edited after posting to youtube because Lacy dropped an f-bomb. Then re-posted the whole thing to Austin360 from his own youtube spot. Johnny on the Spot all the damn way. That's a journalist.

The panel itself was an interesting, if downbeat, examination of what newspapers can do to remain relevant. Newspapers have created some coooooooool apps for the web.

More on that later!
