How Philly.com’s Erica Palan trains her coworkers to think about social

Part of what I hope to do in this weekly column is highlight fresh ideas and insights from journalists working outside of New York, Washington D.C., and San Francisco. No offense to those three places – I live in one of them – but they get a lot of attention from people who write about the media.
