JD Lasica tem assistido à conferência South by Southwest 2003, e deixou no seu blog comentários sobre um painel a que assistiu. Mais uma vez, a ligação entre jornalismo e blogs volta a ser discutida. Um pequeno extracto:

It is becoming clear that millions of people are turning to weblogs for news, information, commentary and entertainment -– just for the pure joy of taking in writing that’s vivid, vibrant, telegenic, emotion-laden, and driven by personal experience rather than the formula of detachment that deadens far too much traditional journalism.

What does it take to be an online journalist? You don’t need a professional publication with a slick Web site behind you, though it doesn’t hurt. All you really need is a computer, Internet connection, and an ability to perform some of the tricks of the trade: report what you observe, analyze events in a meaningful way, but most of all, just be honest and tell the truth.
