Gail Wynand

I've never considered myself a journalist. Fortunately, Twitter provides a mirror. I'm listed in a few lists of Twitter labeled "journalism," "journos," and "sportswriters."  

In college, I thought about a career as a journalist. I looked up internships at the Boston Globe and the WSJ, I worked at the college paper. In my current job, I enable online journalists by giving them the online tools to share their words. But I don't write, at least not professionally. And I don't put my name on the line for a research projects, like journalists do every day.

Journalists deserve admiration and credit. They spend their lives doing the research and analysis that informs, educates, and inspires all of their readers. The most I can mimic is Gail Wynand.
