Dan mentioned that cool things were bubbling.. but now he's offically announced:
It's one of those coasty deals:
He'll be working on "the grass roots media sphere", teaching a class at Berkeley next fall, holding meetings on both coasts on the topic, and helping journalism students and researchers with online emergent citizen journalism.
I'd say interface and usability for that kind of information is most important at this point. Making online information understandable to folks who are not bloggers or early adopters is hard, but having this kind of study be well focused for graduate students who will take what they learn with them into industry is critical.
Good luck Dan! It sounds great!Posted by Mary Hodder at December 27, 2005 08:45 AM | TrackBack
