Media Blogger Boot Camp

Mark Tapscott, director of the Heritage Foundation’s Center for Media and Public Policy, has announced that the second Computer-Assisted Research and Reporting (CARR) Boot Camp will be held September 23-24 at the National Press Club.

Basically, they’ll provide attendees a crash course in use of Excel spreadsheets, crosstabs, regression analysis, and other basic statistics to enable them to do honest-to-goodness reporting. It is open free of charge (with lunch thrown in, to boot!) to the first dozen bloggers who enroll. It is hosted by the Media Bloggers Association, of which Mark and I are board members.
