This weblog itself is an interesting convergence of media--a newspaper reporter covering an event that takes place on the Web, writing about it in real time on the Web, and then writing an article for the newspaper. It's a break from convention perhaps not seen in the Trib's Tempo section since a few years ago, when the Trib published a series of e-mail interviews with precocious author and MTV "Real World" star Dave Eggers and his brother Bill (archived here at my file site)

It was published with the e-mail text in a different font, with Web-ish sidebars along the side with additional bits of information. All this on the same printed page as veteran columnist Bob Greene--it was unusual for a broadsheet. It will be interesting to see how the Trib lays out my article.
