After New York, every other American city is just an empty shell

I’m going to do something karmically dangerous here.  This will surely ruin the rest of my day, get me stuck on the BART, make me step in dog crap, who knows what, but I just can’t hold back any longer. Every time I walk around in San Francisco — mind you, I’m usually either in […]

10 things I heard at the AEJMC convention today

Let me tell you about my first time … at the AEJMC convention. Seriously, I had never been to a conference or convention that was about my own field before today. I mean, I’ve hung out with the physicists and the photographers and maybe even the real estate data information professionals back when I was […]

Blog research at the AEJMC convention

For next week’s trick, I’ll be both a reporter and a student at the AEJMC convention. I’m planning on showing up Thursday morning to the citizen journalism session and later in the day for the “What’s Next for Newspapers and for Journalism Education? – A Continuing Discussion” session. Of course, I might want to duck […]

Now this is more like it

I’m at a tiny little diner/coffee shop in San Francisco, and there’s nine open networks and about ten closed ones. Thanks “default,” whoever you are… I’m around the corner from SixApart, and I have no idea how many other companies/bloggers/a-listers that flash across my aggregator.  Palo Alto definitely looked like VC country, and this definitely […]

In Palo Alto, San Francisco today

I’m working my way up the 280 to the San Francisco financial district today. Is there something cool I should do? Someone I should meet? A conference I should crash? Let me know… [UPDATE: Or not… looks like I’ll hit SF tomorrow…] For the record, as I update this a little later in the day, […]
