Leo Laporte on the future of journalism – extended interview

Sunday, November 22nd, 2009

I recorded this interview with Leo Laporte on a Flip camera at the ONA ’09 Conference on Oct. 2, 2009. I have a shorter two-minute edit at the ONA website. In digging around on my hard drive, I remember I had an extended cut, and it might be of interest for Leo’s fans. I also […]

Thanks to @SuziSteffen’s class, I’ve been invited to join this rather cool panel on Twitter and journalism. Check it out here!


#Collegejourn chat

Sunday, January 18th, 2009

[EDITOR’S NOTE: This week I played host to a weekly chat about college journalism that originated on Twitter using the hashtag #collegejourn. However, this was the first week we moved away from Twitter to a more IRC-style chat. And due to technical difficulties, it ended up here at the last minute. Read the whole log […]


My birthday wish: Help journalism

Friday, December 19th, 2008

Tomorrow I turn 28. But before you leave a quick and dirty “Happy birthday!” greeting on this blog, Twitter or Facebook wall, please consider doing something else extremely important to me first.  Consider donating a small sum of money to the future of journalism. It could be $1 or $100 for all I care, but […]


Where to get unbiased election information

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008

(Those of you in or near San Jose, California, go to my other post at I have more links for you there.) If you live in the United States, I don’t have to remind you that we’re in the climax of election season and we should be getting our October Surprises any time now. […]


The only one in town offended by this headline?

Tuesday, August 19th, 2008

This morning I got up, looked forward to a productive day of freelance work, when I came across this story about the U.S. women’s soccer team in my newspaper and almost choked on my Cheerios: First thought: Wait… whaaaaat… Did I just see that? Is that… um… WHAAAT? Second thought: No.. I must be overreacting. […]


The whys and hows of Twitter and journalism

Sunday, August 10th, 2008

Volumes have already been said about Twitter in journalism. Poynter, Harvard and PBS chimed in, and Ryan Sholin gives journalists concrete ideas here. My two cents: Twitter is only as useful as the people you follow and the people who follow you. If you don’t have the right people on either side of the equation, […]


So when is it called “journalism?”

Thursday, July 10th, 2008

My last post took very wide liberties with the definition of journalism (and thanks, Eshu, for the link). Sure, this is a classic example of low redefinition, and sure, it was to prove a point, to bring the idea of “journalism” out of the newspapers and into everyday lives. I mean, really, what use is […]
