Why Journalists Should Escape Their Desks

I don't always practice what I preach. Yesterday's post, which mentioned not keeping drafts in your blog platform? I'm guilty. Below is the second oldest draft I have (of eleven in total), in the exact form it was left on the 28th of April 2008 (catch you below for some commentary):

French Lunch
Graham's recent post on the Word of Mouth blog bemoaning the rise of lunch al desko reminds me 
Graham's thesis is that the desk lunch is a result of a too-distant relationship with our food. I'd suggest that it also suggest that we're far too attached to our desks in an era when technology is liberating us from it. 

The irony of this one is that this is a subject I believe in passionately: journalists are too wedded to their desks, and not out and about in the communities they report for and on enough. Yet, I've left that post unwritten for four years
Shameful. I'll get to it. It's on my to-do list. But right now, I'm far too exhausted after a long day running a content strategy workshop for a client, and this post is basically a lazy way of fulfilling my commitment to the #back2blog challenge. ;-)
