The unofficial blog for the American Society of News Editors News Now Ideas Summit is ready for your posts. Everyone who visits this site can take part in the action.

Whether or not you're with us for the entire April 11-14 conference at the J.W. Marriott Hotel in Washington D.C., your ideas and observations are welcome 24-7.

Blogs will appear here, and a Twitter-stream (use hashtag #asne10) will run on the CoverItLive portion of this site.

Anyone who is registered to blog can also use the CoverItLive tool on the site to live blog events during the conference. Tweets will appear in real time adjacent to blog posts within the CoverItLive frame.

There's also an area on the blog where you can upload photos.

If you haven't yet registered for the convention or want to see a detailed schedule, you can get to it under "Links we like."

Once the convention begins, you can view presenter handouts made available to us after their sessions. It will also be under "Links we Like."

Please see Craig Branson's post for details about how to register for this blog to post, add photos or comments.

Looking forward to seeing you at ASNE10.
