Beware, I might poke you in the eye!

By Steve Outing

In a mostly complimentary review of my last E&P Online column, “My ‘Crisis’ Advice to Newspaper Company CEOs: 11 Points to Ponder,” the North Carolina Press Association Idea Bank blog (post written by “The Seeker”) referred to me this way:

“From the times I’ve read Outing’s columns, he doesn’t seem to be the type of person who minds poking his finger in the eyes of people he believes to be short-sighted or even blind to the world of new media. I don’t agree with everything he writes, but a lot of it makes perfect sense.”

I think that’s a compliment. Isn’t it? :) Should I add that to my resume under recommendations?!

Seriously, I’m pleased that that column is getting some notice for the ideas presented. I wish someone at the highest levels of Tribune Co. would read it. I don’t sense that they’ve adopted much of that advice.
