Dan Rather Keynote

Unfortunately, I was disappointed with this Keynote interview. While Rather deserves the ultimate respect for his years as a journalist and CBS anchor, his comments for this audience were superficial and vague. I thought that he might have some ideas about the future of media or some new online projects on which he was working. Instead, he rambled about the state of journalists today, how they needed more guts. But, he was vague on how bloggers or online media organizations could fill that role. Usually SXSW Interactive Keynotes are inspiring and informative, but this was simply a chance to see a veteran journalist.
