• The accused vs. the accuser vs. THE MEDIA
    So the Duke rape case that has been ongoing for over a year now, and the charges against the players were dropped recently. I can't help but wonder if this is partially due to media influence and they way that the victim has been portrayed from the beginning. Everyone completely ignored all of the [...]
  • Live from Outfront ...
    Many thanks to MediaPost for allowing Sean, Amanda, Betsy and me to sit in on Thursday's panel. We had an incredible time and I hope those in attendance took away at least a few new thoughts. For those of you who missed it, check it out on MediaPost's player: Click here to watch the video. We'll be posting [...]
  • Upfront Opinions of the Outfront
    I attended the MediaPost Outfront conference for the first time this week. It was an honor to meet everyone and hear your comments and questions. The dialogue was wonderful, and I speak for my fellow bloggers when I say we are more than happy to extend the conversation beyond this week. Because this was the Outfront [...]
  • Breaking News: You're a Leo.
    Behold, a screenshot of MySpace News beta. The new service is receiving some minor press attention for it's new "Google + Digg" theory of news presentation/aggregation. If the above screenshot is any indication, today's teeny-bops are going to be ignorant as hell in the future. Let's break it down: First we see a story related to astrology as [...]
  • Brought to you by: Goople
    OK, I may have stolen the headline, but if I get my wish - we'll be hearing that phrase all too soon. I'm one of those people who made the personal choice many years back to use a Mac whenever possible. It's my choice. (If you're already chomping at the bit to start rattling off reasons [...]
  • Cho Seung-Hui and Facebook
    If you get on Facebook and search 'Cho Seung-Hui' 179 groups appear: "Cho Seung Hui, if you had a myspace, Tom wouldn't be your friend" "Cho Seung-Hui does not represent Koreans" "Cho Seung Hui is a Douchebag" Just to name a few. People are using facebook by creating groups to express their feelings against this person, [...]
  • Tragedy. . . and the Media
    I've written the introduction to this blog five or six times but there is just no appropriate way to begin talking about the VA Tech shootings this week. As a college student this tragedy hits particularly close to home, but I know everyone who heard the news was affected in some way. The interesting thing [...]
  • Media Gaps
    Following the tragedy at Virginia Tech, I think that a conversation about communication gaps is important to continue. Why, when we are at our peak of digital technology + media, are we so incapable of communicating in an emergency situation? It seems funny (funny, odd) that our technology has been pushed to the [...]
  • Reader Comment of the Week
    I think the article makes some very valid points. It is odd to think that the use of email to notify students shows the weakness of this now 'old-fashion' medium. On the one hand was the slowness in issuing even the email warning but by staying closer to changing [...]
  • What Happens in Vegas ... ends up on the Internet
    I'm back! After an overwhelmingly busy few weeks, I'm back into the position where I have sporadic sets of minutes to share with you on the blogosphere. This week, I'm at the NAB convention in Las Vegas. This is my first time at NAB, and it's quite an amazing experience. I'm here as a student representative [...]
