What’s in your bag?
Greetings, all. I was out on an assignment recently with one of our local AP reporters and I am always amazed watching him. He’s a good reporter, and he’s also the most technologically tricked out reporters I’ve ever seen. He’s got a Treo, a little portable computer (I don’t even know what it’s called, but it’s about a third the size of a regular laptop), he carries two digital voice recorders, a regular cell phone, and, finally, a notebook and pen. I’ve been meaning to have this conversation with Capitolbeaters for a while, but I’m curious to know: What’s in your bag? That’s an old golf question, but what I mean is: What are your tools of the trade? Are you old school — pencil and notebook — or are you new school, meaning you’ve got more toys than my 4 year old. Post your responses as comments here. I’ll go first:
Aaron Gould Sheinin
Olympus digital voice recorder
Pen (I have had a Waterford fountain pen for 10 years that I typically use, although it’s currently out ink and I haven’t gotten a new bottle yet.)
