We visited NewMediaJim (Jim Long of NBC News) who was on the Obama VP watch at Sen. Joe Biden’s home in Delaware. It looks like they sent Jim to the right location, but the excitement was punctuated by long stretches of sheer boredom, interrupted by lunch runs from social media types. The other journalists on site were amazed at the extent of Jim’s social media network.
Whitney Hoffman, leader of the Podcamp Philly organizing committee (September 6-7 at Temple University), lives nearby and has visited Jim several times during the media vigil. I connected with Whit (@ldpodcast on Twitter) and we brought sandwiches and drinks.
