If you're curious about the basics of the so-called "new media" - but feel intimidated by the idea of cutting video or designing a website - I suggest stopping by Room 119 at 12:50 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 5. My aim is to show how mobile journalism has become the most common and easiest way for writers to get on the web.
