We had a great class at BU today. New Media Tools for Journalism - Reporting with a cellphone.

The best moment came when I asked my twitter followers to say hi to the class.

We got lots of twitter replies including this one from Huffington Post:

huffpost twitter message to BU students

We also got a lot of people saying hi and some great replies to the question of McCain showing up at the debate:
AmandaGravel: @stevegarfield Hi Steve's class! I used to be in those seats, myself. Did you invite McCain to join you? ;-)

JeffCutler: @stevegarfield That's a no-brainer. Of course he should. How else can we become an informed electorate? Ask if they're gonna watch!

JoeCascio: @stevegarfield Yes, he should show up. Trying to cancel is a cheap campaign grandstanding trick to try to make Obama look "unpatriotic".

abbyladybug: @stevegarfield Of course he should! All he's doing it making himself look weak and making his VP look weaker.

GrpCaptMandrake: @stevegarfield Yes! McCain needs to show up. He's damned if he does and damned If he doesn't. But showing up is definitely better.

Genevangelist: @stevegarfield It's not a matter of John McCain showing up and winning the debate (which he will) it's "Will Barry Obama show up in DC?"

hawaii: @stevegarfield: He should, but probably won't. Where's the wise, steady hand? "Maverick" shouldn't mean erratic. A ploy to stall VP debate?
