Here is an excerpt from the first issue of my newsletter, Lyceum Bulletin:

Is e-mail “dead”? Will my news bulletin be able to cut through the digital noise and create buzz? How could I have time to read my own newsletter, if I am struggling with all the notifications and messages?I got an aha! moment when I read Kevin Rose’s revamped newsletter, The Journal, and decided it was time to create my first real newsletter.

It will be interesting to see how Revue will compete with the traditional newsletter tools.

Do you have your own newsletter? Do you have a favorite newsletter?

Apple recently celebrated 10 years of podcasting in iTunes, and I celebrated 8 years with podcasting on my birthday, May 25! ;)

Story
Tagline
Student of Information Systems at Muhlenberg College and wearer of many hats
Introduction

I'm Heather Stone, and I'm the Technical Admin and hat-wearer. I also do website moderation, community building, and support.

I'm a third year student taking a Bachelor's of Information Systems at Muhlenberg College and am focused on exploring career options in Systems Analysis, Database Administration, Project Management and Web Development. I know I've got to narrow it down a little, so my plan is to continue delving into these areas to see what fits best.

Graduation is almost upon me! I graduate Oct. 19, 2013, and even though I have a few courses and a Capstone project to finish, it feels like it's just around the corner. I am actively seeking jobs/opportunities where I can use my people skills and my tech abilities--SQL, .NET, Systems Analysis, Project Management, now PHP and MySQL, and a whole lot more--JavaScript, HTML, UML, all kinds of fun stuff.

I have a good familiarity with a lot of technologies/languages, but I'm not an expert in any yet--hope to be soon. If you're looking for someone who is versatile, able to facilitate and work successfully with clients or teams, I'm your person. And I will learn any program you need. I am up for any challenge! I'm going for MS certification in SQL Server 2012, starting soon, but I love VB too. I'm looking for entry level Systems/Business Analyst, DB Analyst Tech Support, or Programmer.

Besides all this, I'm a singer-songwriter and guitarist with over 20 original songs and have been in various bands over the years, playing now and again for fun these days.
