Austin, PBS, Facebook and the end: What's new in 2013


Happy New Year! I hope the holiday season was healthy and happy time for you and your family. There are some posts that I have in the works that I hope to be publishing in the next few days. In the meantime, a few updates:

  • I'm pleased to announce that I'll once again be taking part in the Summit on Communication and Sport, sponsored by the International Association for Sports Communication. This year's summit is the last weekend of February in Austin, Texas. To sayI'm excited to make my first trip to Austin is an understatement. I'm also excited to spend three days with some of my favorite people in academia.
  • I will also be continuing to blog for the PBS IdeaLab and the Journovation Journal, as part of my job as the research assistant for the Peter Horvitz Endowed Chair for Journalism Innovation at Syracuse University.
  • I'm hoping to do a little bit more with social media and this blog. I'm getting us set up on Facebook, and I hope to be up and running there soon,.
  • If I'm a little more quiet than usual, it's because I'm hitting the home stretch of my doctoral studies. This is my final semester of classes, which is followed by qualifying exams (essentially finals for your entire doctoral program), which is followed by my dissertation. I'm super excited about my classes in the fall and with where I am in the program. If this blog has to be quiet every now and then because of that, it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make. When I write, I want it to be good. I want to make sure my time and attention are focused where they need to be. Sometimes, that's here. But when it's not, I hope you'll understand.
