Frank Bruni and Kelly Choi spoke last Thursday before an audience of wannabe hacks at Columbia University's School of Journalism, which they both attended -- Bruni, class of '88; Choi, '99. Bruni echoed a statement he recently made here on Fork in the Road: "I think it [new media journalism] has been a positive development... [but] I get concerned with people equating user content with more traditional journalism -- when you're reading Chowhound... You don't know if you're reading a review by the relative of the owner of a restaurant."

Choi -- she of such enlightening Tweets as: "Beauteous day ahead, happiness..making cardamom coffee, munching on crusty bagel stuffed with egg salad"; "Top chef masters ratings up up up and rockin!! The Master chefs rooooool.... Tx so much!!!"; and "Guys? If a hot chick eats like a beast, does it turn u on? Lol" -- had this to offer, as the secret behind her success: "I'm just a gal who likes fudge."
