How journalism education should change  —  Print's dead; newspapers are toast; Dave Winer has some good suggestions to revamp journalism education and bloggers can't get enough of the San Francisco Chronicle's woes.  —  It's a debate-as someone who could be considered professional trained journalist-that frankly tires me out.
