Anthony Bourdain revisits Vietnam next week. This time he's going to the Central Highlands. Wonder what he'll dig up? Mi Quang in Danang? (I hope). Cao Lau in Hoi An? (I hope). Strawberry Vang Da Lat ( I hope not, for his sake…) Beyond Hoi An, I didn't really explore the Central Highlands of Vietnam for food, unlike some others. Although I used to get my greens delivered to my door from there once per week. Alors, his show is on Monday, Mar 29 at 10 PM E/P. Guess it'll be online for the rest of us fairly soonish.

Ha… revisited something I wrote from three years ago,
The second point that interests me from a practical point of view is how a combination of twitter/blog/flickr/crowdsourcing can aid the reporter in best reporting the raw facts and then help develop a story. I think the idea of a Twitter network has legs for journalists/editors. Blogs are well proven as are Flickr, YouTube et al – and remember if I hadn't uploaded these pics to Flickr I might never have found out (or it might have taken me longer to find out) that the police were actively deleting digital images in Toulouse on Sunday. For the journalist, the skill is in meshing all these tools together in a meaningful way. link
Ha… Like that was ever gonna happen.
I’ve been doing a lot of training for the BBC College of Journalism of late. I took the opportunity to blog a little bit of the background on doing the photojournalism story from Rubona, in eastern Rwanda the other week. If you’re interested in how to be a mobile foreign correspondent with minimal (and in some cases pretty old) tools, take a look at this post on the College site.
I went to Rubona, east of Kigali last Saturday to watch Stoke City vs. Arsenal. Click the bottom right "full screen" mode on the slideshow above to find out why I was there in the first place. And what the people of Rubona think of Stoke… It's my attempt at a bit of photojournalism.
