UNC has Paul Jones...

An article in the NY Times discusses how J-School admissions are booming, yet not all are getting on the new media bandwagon.

First of all, it is sad that UNC's J-School is not even mentioned in this article. While it is true that schools are not embracing new media to the extent that we would expect them to, UNC does have Paul Jones who teaches an outstanding class on online communities. I took his class last fall and there were several undergrad journalism students in that class planning to use their knowledge of new media in their journalism careers.

Guess we need to do a better job tooting our own horn.
