What Jill Just Said: The 'NY Times' Editor At SXSW

You are there at SXSW: New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson did not "talk smack about WSJ and the Post," despite being pressed to do so in her talk with Texas Tribune Editor in Chief and CEO Evan Smith. That's just one of the behind-the-scenes comments by Steve Myers in his excellent live-blog of the discussion, held earlier today.

Nothing earth-shattering here, but an interesting discussion of, among other topics, the Times' digital strategy, as in "one story by Amy Harmon that used quick videos that were spread throughout the story, so that readers could meet the characters while they were reading rather than publishing the video separately," writes Myers.

Some funny stuff is also tweeted by other session attendees: "Evan Smith says blue bag of NYT in driveway is 'socialist' label in Texas."
