Nieman Conference: A Public Service Announcement

The More You Know IconAfter two days, it seems clear some attendees are a little hazy about questions. A question, as I understand it, is supposed to be a brief query directed at a speaker or a panel. They aren’t:

  • Long, rambling speeches with no clear purpose
  • “Observations”… followed with a faux question like “what do you think about what I just said?”
  • Three or four questions that take two minutes to unravel

Seriously, people… (You know who you are!) Let others have a chance to ask a question. Save the storytelling and contemplations for your writing…
