appear to be working at a newspaper interned at the regional desk of ANG Newspapers at the Oakland Tribune last summer. My stories have drifted behind the paywall for the most part.
- I promise, I’ll get around to posting a few stories here soon.
- My first try at journalistic style, a write-up of Robert Scoble’s visit to SJSU in February of 2005.
- An article about Slashdot, after picking up a little bit in class about how to turn my essay/analytic style into something a little more readable and printable.
- I chose “Whither Shortwave Radio?” for an assignment using Usenet and other Web sources to find the answer to a question.
Essays & Critiques
- Ethics and Global Marketing in Venezuela, an essay written for an Anthropology class. I’ve done my best to keep this paper as balanced as possible, trying to show how the current political culture in Venezuela has defined how the nation interacts with American corporations in certain cases. I do not intend to pass any judgment on Hugo Chavez. This was part of a group project in which we each wrote our own papers on the issue of Ethics and Global Marketing in a country of our choice, all addressing the topics of the Western diet, cigarette smoking, and safe sex.
- A critique of Media Ethics by C. Christians, et al.
- A critique of Media, Gender & Identity by David Gauntlett.
- A critique of Living in the Information Age edited by Erik Bucy. My focus in this critique was in finding a balance between the optimism of horizontal bonds and the echo chamber.
- Dizzy Gillespie and I crossed paths once. I wrote this essay in my Freshman writing class at NYU in 1994.
