Article Gets Mention on PBS’s Mediashift SiteDecember 1, 2008
Alfred Hermida mentions my recent Thunderbird article in his article, “J-Students Take Multiplatform Approach to City Politics.” Hermida’s article is featured on PBS’s Mediashift website, which examines the move to digital media.
Alfred Hermida is my professor in what we at “J-School” call “iJournalism,” which is shorthand for integrated or multiplatform journalism (we’re very fond of abbreviations). Hermida is UBC J-School’s expert on all things technological, and runs a celebrated blog on media and technology, reportr.net.
Okay, it’s not the best reference. I’m in there as a sort-of throwback to the resilience of “plain old text.”
But I’m not going to shun fame when it finds me.
