That would be Howard Owens. And this would be him, in a photo I took when Perry and I visited him yesterday at his office overlooking the newsroom of the Ventura County Star in southern California.

Howard came to our LA blogger/media party last week, but I didn’t get a chance to talk to him at length. So it was quite buoying to hear him, as a mainstream media guy, saying quite smart and correct things about how blogging does and can relate to established media. Sometimes, just connecting with someone who knows what he’s talking about when it comes to this subject can set me on a high for the rest of the day. “Yay, a total lack of BS and a whole lot of intelligence!” Don’t worry, I don’t embarrass myself or Perry by exclaiming this aloud. Not usually, anyway.
