November 15. Day 320. Start spreading the news

 I've seen the future and I like the look of it (sort of). So first stop this morning was at USA Today where we sat in on the morning news conference and then got down to business - where getting down to business included playing with the Virtual Reality tools the company is playing with to tell journalism. The company has a VR team of 8 and think that virtual reality is about to break out of the realm of gamers and hit the eyes of "normal people". Indeed they think 2017 will be the year that happens. I admit a bit (okay a great deal) of skepticism on this point but I am hardly an expert. Then on to NPR where podcasts and the new NPR One App are the flavour of the day. We are used to video on demand but radio on demand has been a bit slower and NPR looks like it has cracked the code.
And then? Union Station and off to New York, New York. Oh happy days.
