In 2017 I wanted to re-establish a daily habit of reading more books and set a fairly ambitious goal of reading a book a week. Additionally, I wanted to read more fiction (I tend to read mostly nonfiction) and books by non-white dudes. Here’s how it went.
Last week I was thrilled to be invited to speak about emerging social media at the Kiplinger Program’s Social Media Summit at Ohio State University. In my talk I identified and talked through some examples of a few larger trends in technology generally and social media in particular and I thought I’d share those with you here.
In their rush to drag typical “horse race” style political reporting kicking and screaming into the social media age, many journalists and the news organizations they work for are falling into a dangerous trap.
