"Online journalism excites me because of its potential for improving our connections with readers. While covering the Littleton shooting, I answered questions from readers in two hour-long online chats, which together attracted more than 1,600 people . . . [it's] not just the chance to tell stories in new, interactive ways. It’s that these new media tools and techniques help me bring readers a truer picture of the world."
-- Jonathan Dube, in a July/Aug 1999 Columbia Journalism Review artice, "The Water's Fine."
