This is a blog about media ethics and journalism / journalists. It is meant to be useful for students, but also for media consumers and journalists or other newsworkers.
I’m also combining my work passion with my pleasure, the not-so-humble martini.
This is my first blog. I’m a digital immigrant, so please be patient. I will be back regularly to update this with a weekly “ethical outrage” or even the odd boquet. Comments welcome.
I am also interested in developing a team to contribute. If you’re interested email me (address in top right corner of this page). I’m serious about this, but it seems that there’s a reticence to commit. I’m not sure why, blogging’s not that hard. A number of my students do it and I link to their blogs. Why not. In 5 years’ time they could be among the hotshot bloggers. You can find them in my links sidebar.
You can find me at various places on the web, including:
I’m still working on my links and pages layout. One day soon I’ll even have my own domain. The difficulty is finding the time among all the other stuff I have to do and want to do, like teaching, administrivia and thinking. Not to mention the odd martini.
I’ve been a bit lax on the martini front recently. My drinking tends to more domestic than public (apart from regular visits to the Brooklyn Bar). I keep intending to fix that, but like the Mad Hatter, my watch doesn’t want to keep up with my busy lifestyle.
