Last night, after the issue was brought to light, I recieved a call from Daron, the reporter, who spoke with Jason earlier in the day. He did not say anything about what I brought up but asked me about the Blog Awards, which I answered to the best ability. Sorry Megan I didn’t know your Cell phone was working down there. I told him about this blog and we talked about it a little. He told me he wouldn’t mind meeting up sometime in the New Year and then the conversation was done.
The reason I mention Daron’s name is because he posted a comment on my post last night and is going to clarify himself there. I fully respect him for coming forward rather than trying avoid all this. I think Daron is an excellent guy, I met him back in the summer. He does an excellent job covering Yellowknife Entertainment scene. It is very unfortunate that he got caught up in this mess I kept feeding. I hope we can sit down for a coffee sometime in the new year.
I held off informing everyone that I spoke to Daron last night, for only one reason. The discussion that is happening. This topic which we are talking about is not only related to Yellowknife, but also North American and the UK as a whole. How does traditional media deal with new media, how can they work together; it is a topic that interests me very much and something I am constantly reading about. As the conversation that was happening was related to our community of Yellowknife I wanted to see where it would go, and I am very pleased with the response.
Please join in the discussion and also check out the fluff piece in Wednesdays edition of the paper about the NWT Blog Awards.
