I’m working on a strategy study for the American Press Institute on a topic I care a lot about: engagement in journalism.
I’m doing lots of interviews, lots of reading, lots of thinking, and lots of structural tinkering to figure out how to share what I’m learning so it’s clear how important involving the public is to everything journalism sets out to do.
Got a thought on this? A case study I should know about? Send me an email or reach out on Twitter or Facebook. I’d love to hear it.
I found out a couple weeks ago, but I can finally talk about it today:
I’m a 2016 Nieman Fellow!
Here’s what that means:
- I’m moving to Boston in August with Jason and the kids
- I’m spending the 2015-2016 academic year taking courses at Harvard and MIT in and around what most fascinates me in journalism, digital media and leadership
- I’ll be getting to know the 23 amazing fellow journalists in my class
- I’ll be learning all I can from the speakers and faculty who stop by Harvard’s Nieman Foundation
- I’m going to miss Seattle like crazy
We’ll be back home in May 2016, so don’t worry — this is a round-trip ticket.
I still can’t believe this is happening. I’m so grateful to Nieman for the opportunity. This is going to be fun.
I’m on Season 5 of “The Good Wife,” the CBS legal drama starring Julianna Margulies that became my binge of the moment during the long days at the end of my pregnancy.
Every time I drown in a TV show, little things about it get in my head. This series is no different.
Here are four things watching “The Good Wife” makes me want to do more.
