Commentary focussed on my new job as an Assistant Professor of Media and Public Affairs at The University of George Washington University

Facebook Follies

I had my first on-the-record interview last week with the GW Hatchet.

The article is called Professors get Facebook profiles to enhance classes.

Which is not particularly accurate to what I said in the interview, but whatever, it was fun.

Digital Politics

Fascinating event at GW this week.

Great panels, one with the web strategists from the McCain, Obama, and Clinton campaigns, and another with very interesting execs from the big social networking sites.

The highlight for me however was a film called 18 in 08 that I thought was just brilliant.

Docs in Progress

I finally made it out to one the Docs in Progress events.

This is a cool venue for filmmakers to get open feedback – takes thick skin.

I was especially impressed with Nina‘s new film Matador, which will be completed later this Summer.
