Nieman Lab Congratulates LA Times Employee for ‘Best F-Bomb of the Conference’

Thanks to the wonders of Web video, it’s possible to point readers to the exact minute and second mark where the good stuff can be found. Case in point: Nieman Lab staff writer Adrienne LaFrance’s item extolling some of the best video clips culled and belatedly posted from this spring’s International Symposium on Online Journalism.

We wrote at the time about LA Times database producer Ben Welsh’s participation. But we did not realize until now that it featured a “crescendo that ends with the best F-bomb of the conference:”

In his impassioned closing plea, Welsh limns the age-old conflict between an “old line media institution” like the LAT and brash members of the tech startup world. Per LaFrance, slide that Vimeo cursor bar to the 11:08 mark.
