More great speakers at UNC...

Yesterday was a boon to we grad students: two great speakers in one day! In my blogging class, we had Brian Russell, founder of audioactivism.org come to talk about podcasting. As you can hear from Brian's podcasts, he has a passion for activism and media literacy. We are even luckier that Brian is now an employee in the J-School.

In my Human Computer interaction class, Dr. Shyam Sundar from Penn State came to talk about his work on agency in on-line communications. Dr. Sundar's research record is astounding. It was amazing to hear someone of his stature in our small class of seven.

It is interesting to have both of these classes at the same time.

Thanks for your kind words. I'm glad you came to the talk. Also I'm really enjoying working at the J-school. See you around campus. :)
