I can’t make it to graduate student orientation in my department next week, so I created this screencast instead. It’s not the most polished piece of video (I sound a bit sleepy?), but I hope it briefly sums up who I am and what I’m up to, in less than 4 minutes.
Starting today, I will be blogging on occasion via the Nieman Lab, a project of the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University. Lab director Joshua Benton has kindly invited me to contribute on issues related to academe (a la C. W. Anderson, although there’s no way I’ll be able to match his smarts!), with special emphasis on the evolution of the j-school—which is certain to be a key topic for discussion in 2010 and beyond.
Meanwhile, I look at this space at sethlewis.org as an academic diary … or maybe I’ll use something like Tumblr or Posterous instead. Stay tuned, folks.
