Deep in the Heart of ... Online Journalism

Whew! Just got back from the 2005 International Symposium on Online Journalism. This conference, hosted by the School of Journalism at the University of Texas at Austin is a unique experience where academics, professionals and students (and this year, even some bloggers) get together to discuss trends and issues facing the media due to changes in communication technology.

The conference is the brainchild of Professor Rosental Alves the Knight Chair in Journalism, the Director of the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas and the UNESCO Chair in Communication at the University of Texas at Austin. Rosental was the professor I cut my teeth under at UT, and it is always good to be back in Austin and seeing familiar faces.

This year's conference was particularly good, but I am so tired, I'm going to need a while to process and digest my notes before I use any of them.
