Beginning a conversation

After some help from a former student, Eric Hansen, I've decided to jump into the social media world and start blogging!
As a teacher, I find I learn as much from my students as they likely learn from me. Eric, a recent graduate of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications with a degree in public relations, delivered a dynamite series of seminars on new media in spring 2007 here at Newhouse and he inspired me to start communicating with others through this technology.
Since I work in an environment where news is king and all things current spark interest, I look forward to chatting about the latest trends, disturbing news stories, corporate foibles, and many other topics.
Here's to some great discussion!
