On your mark, get set, go ...

The Freedom Forum's Diversity Institute (that's it at right) will be filled with professional journalists and guests tonight for the kickoff of the first online and multimedia reporting seminar.

Twenty-one graduates of Freedom Forum diversity programs are attending a one-week seminar to learn more about the world of online news. They are 12 Chips Quinn Scholars, three Diversity Institute graduates, one graduate of the American Indian Journalism Institute and four ASNE/APME Fellows. And one participant is both an ASNE/APME Fellow and Chips Quinn Scholar alum.

After introductions, Steve Yelvington starts us off. He is principal strategist for Morris DigitalWorks in Georgia. Stay tuned for Steve's remarks and more as participants post to this seminar blog.
