red_square_nigel_tomm_m Editor Derrick O’Keefe will be on babble, our online discussion forum, this afternoon for the latest installment of “Oh Good Grief, O’Keefe.” Please note the new time as we experiment with finding the best slot to encourage reader participation. Join us today at 12:00 p.m. PST/3:00 p.m. EST to chat with Derrick.

We’ll also be starting with a themed discussion: What do you think about‘s coverage of the Quebec student protests?

As usual, some of the most extensive coverage has taken place right here on babble (with a special thanks to babblers epaulo13, Unionist and Barüler for keeping us up to date).

Our bloggers have done some work taking on the economics of Rex Murphy’s naïve analysis, while Not Rex’s Humberto DaSilva also had his say.

We’ve had more philosophical analysis, including Stephan Christoff’s ‘Rêve général illimité’ in Quebec (more from Stephan here and here) as well as straight up new reportage like the students’ rejection of Charest’s May 6 offer.

So: here’s your chance to advise Derrick and the editorial staff on what you’d like to see more (or less) of. More multimedia? More editorials? More words from the students themselves? Plus d’articles en français? Or are we just being too easy on the entitled teenagers?

Join us this afternoon and get in on the discussion!
