Anyone who says Thunderdome failed hasn't been paying attention - it was just getting started and that's the real shame about all of this.  The people in that newsroom will undoubtedly all go on to do great things.

Not everyone is enamored with Google #Glass....which drove me to compile this ever-growing list of people hating on the #Glassholes.

I got the chance to test out Google ‪#‎Glass‬ last week. Here's my take on the (somewhat rough) user experience - and what journalism and journalists might be able to do with it next.

Randomly found this photo from my trip to Moscow in 2011, where I taught a couple of social media workshops to Russian journalists. What an experience.

The #MantiTeo  hoax story is only the latest head-shaking instance of sports journalism malpractice. How can sports media be fixed? Maybe a little soul-searching is in order.

I've often heard from people who hire others that they don't like posting their jobs publicly because a bunch of random people will apply. These same sort of people also tend to complain that they can't find qualified women or journalists of color to hire. I think these two things are related. 

What do you think?

In tonight's #susj13 class, +Steve Buttry  and I are going over #crowdsourcing for #journalism. What tools, tips or examples should we be sure to include?

Yesterday, Buzzfeed published a story stating that the social media editor role at news organizations is dead. I disagree, but I think the days of the social media editor as News Rockstar Ninja Guru are over (and thank goodness for that – there's a lot of real work left to do). What do you think?

I think all new media eventually becomes part of our core competencies.  You will always needs accelerators, trainers, advocates, and those that conquer new frontiers.
