I've been teaching since 1973. Because of my interest in computers and Internet as communication and knowledge tools, I have taught in television, multimedia and now journalism departments. What a surprise for someone who studied statistics and public policy.

The post summarizes a major event in journalism in Chicago, and what the major ideas that came out of the meeting were.

This is an invitation and description of the upcoming citizen journalism forum. The Ohmynews citizen journalism forums provide citizen journalists with an international perspective on what they are doing. There is a good mix of idealism with commerce at these meetings.

Jon writes about "media structure" from an expert point of view, as a computer information specialist. Garfunkel operates from the assumption that "Constructive media is an approach to communications that is designed for enhancing the understanding of its participants with the minimum of effort and errors." His suggestion and example in this post show how any online publication, especially newspapers, can make the letters to the editor and posts to the editor process more transparent and useful to readers as well as gatekeepers.

Brief concise explanation of the opposing points of view on net neutrality. Good sources and references listed with the story. Fair to both views but he evaluates the evidence so its not just "he said, she said."
