A lot of blogs and Twitter chatter out there are still reflecting on last week's news of change and layoffs in Booth. And as I'm doing research for this 20-page media ethics capstone paper, I can't help but reflect as well. I keep finding passages that lets this sink further in. It, at least, solidifies one thing: Such heartbreaking news in this industry happens all over the place. Here's some food for thought:

"A newspaper is an ecosystem, the health of which depends on the fitness of its symbolic parts. When you eliminate one species, you threaten the vitality of the whole." -Doug Marlette, referring specifically to editorial cartoonists and their declining species. But it really does apply to every cohort of a system.

I just hope everyone behaves themselves. I don't want to heat about any arrests or injuries up there.

Yesterday was the first time on an airplane for my grandpa, who turns 85 next month. He was pretty excited.

Started a Tumblr. Seemed unnecessary, but there's stuff on there I actually don't share any where else. Jackie20Smith.tumblr.com

Love this page by former co-workers at +Central Michigan Life about the CMU Med School. It's got it all: a map of other institutions, the documents embedded into the pag and a timeline of the med school's history. Great work y'all!

Hey everyone, add +Central Michigan Life. I know it's blank right now, but ... not for too, too long. Time to stretch our social media muscles, here. Seeing where it goes.

This is what happens when a newspaper's Web master is loading the final php file to the new server after a month of unexpected road blocks. Congrats to him for getting through it this weekend. May http://cm-life.com be faster and better, but most of all free of 503 errors. http://twitpic.com/78fnkm

"Do you mean THIS kind of agility?" Thank you to a former coworker for posting this on my Facebook wall, inspiring me to share it with the world.
