Come join us in San Francisco: Friday evening at 6, at the Hilton

Zach and I are about to head to San Francisco for the 2009 Online News Association conference, the annual gathering of the tribe. If you spot us there, be sure to come say hello — we love meeting our readers.

In fact, we’re going to have a little get-together on Friday evening at 6 p.m. for readers of this site, people who follow us on Twitter, and anyone else who’s interested. Nothing formal — just a chance to meet and talk. We’ll do it at the bar of the Urban Tavern, which is the restaurant at the Hilton San Francisco, where the conference is being held. First five people to arrive and tell me the secret password (“Walter Lippmann“) get a free drink on me.

“Compared to online audiences, partisan TV news consumers tend not to stray too far from their narrow sets of preferred news sources.”
