Friday Fast Five + Five: The New Years’ Edition

By Benét J. Wilson, DJTF co-chair, Online Managing Editor-Business Aviation, Aviation Week Group

Editor’s note: the Digital Journalism Task Force is holding a BlogTalkRadio session Tuesday, Jan. 11 from noon to 1:00 p.m. on this year’s convention.  Our panel, which features convention chair Rod Hicks, programming chair Dr. Sybril Bennett and Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists President Sarah Glover, will discuss what members can expect at this year’s event. Bennett will also offer guidance on what she and the Programming Committee will expect for this year’s workshops and panels.  We’ll also leave time for your questions. I hope you can join us.

Also, we will be migrating this blog to one week from today.  It will now only be available to NABJ members.  The decision was made as NABJ continues efforts to build value in having a membership.  We’ll keep this page ope and available as a resource, and our old posts will continue to be available here.   Members, please go to and click on the link for the Digital Journalism Task Force.

So here we are in 2011, ready to look ahead and make our resolutions.  You can check out my plans for 2011 over at my Aviation Queen blog.  And in that spirit, today’s Fast Five are all things you can use to help you with your resolutions.  Enjoy!
