We had a visitor this week. A tall, blond Norseman named Thor Henning Lerstad. Thor came sans War Hammer to the land of hot dish to learn about Public Insight Journalism, citizen journalism, and how our newsroom works. You see, he works at the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation. And his station in Lillehammer, like ours, is reorienting itself ... opening up as it were ... to its audience, and Thor's charge is to figure out how to do it.
Cool. Got us talking about connecting up at some point and sharing views between Norway and Minnesota. He left us with a bar of Norwegian chocolate, et lite stykke Norge (a little piece of Norway).
