Hi, fellow bloggers/classmates! I just created the blog for the class and look forward to discussions about the Internet. The topic is very dear to me, a computer programmer for the past 7 years. My IT career is ending but my love for technology is not, but growing. That's why I come back to school to have a deeper look at it in my Ph.D. program.
So follwing suit, I'm going to intoduce myself (again, since we did it in class :))I'm Shabnam, an exchange student from the University of Cape Town, South Africa. I'm currently in the process of completing my Honours in Media Theory and Practice.
Hello, I am Dustin Wilhelme, I am an undergrad within the JMC school. This book seems relevant to everyone especially in this class because in the future there will never be a lack of information and technology. People need to know how to use this power and know the main philosophies behind it.
Posting introductions sounds like a good idea - here's mine. I'm Les Chappell, a 21-year-old senior majoring in journalism-reporting track. I work at the Daily Cardinal student newspaper, am currently fascinated by the new journalism style of reporting, an avid reader (Hunter S. Thompson, Kurt Vonnegut and Gilbert Sorrentino are currently top authors) and a force for self-amusement in this world. I'm taking this course b/c I worked at an online technology magazine for two and a half years, and know the power of the Internet for creative journalism.
Hi all, my name is Xiaohua and I go by Awa since my name is really difficult to pronounce. I'm a PhD student in School of Library and Information Studies where Greg occupies another nice office. Information, Internet, and info technology are also heavily studied in my field (LIS), but not so much from social perspectives. I'm ready to learn from you all!
Hi, I am Katie Drucker. I am a senior and a journalism major. I am taking this class because, to be honest, I tend to avoid technology. I have never even been on facebook. But I know that technology is extremely important and as the introduction of the reader discusses, some argue we are entering a new information or Knowledge Society, that is dependent on technology. So I am challenging myself to learn about technology and the effects of it.
Hi all. I'm Michelle, a undergrad majoring in journalism and political science. I developed an interest in new media while interning at a public relations organization in Australia last year. For me, it's the rate of change that makes new media outlets fascinating to study. That said, I came by this course very much by chance. Basically, the books for it caught my attention while I was browsing the journalism section of the university bookstore... talk about luck!

Hi, everyone. I'm a grad student in the English dept, so the journalism thing is new to me, but I've been interested in using technology to teach for a while now. I'm especially excited to see some of my own pedagogies (such as using blogs in an academic setting) being put to use for this class. I look forward to a lot of great reading and discussion here.
Hey, I'm Brian. I'm a first-year doctoral student in the J-School planning to focus on international media. I also pretty interested in new media, especially how it relates to popular culture. For example, today I spent way too much time reading about the lonelygirl15 saga on youtube. If you like conspiracies, you should check it out...http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=lonelygirl15http://www.onthemedia.org/otm090106.html
My name is Jason and I am a graduate student in the journalism department. My background is in political science but I spent the last couple of years as a web designer, so this class just seems like a fit. I'm a Virgo and my favorite color is black.
Hello world. My name is Nakho, and I'm currently pursuing a PhD degree in J-school... which unfortunately won't end for quite a while (well, such is life). I have been in cyberspace since the late 80's (1200bps modem, anyone?) and still swimming inside the vast dirty information ocean. Well, besides that, I work also as a comics columnist for South Korean media... but that's another long story.
Hey guys, I am Ricky Quinones, a junior from Oconomowoc, WI. I am planning on majoring on Journalism and Political Science. The media world has always interested me from a young age as my mother manages the newsroom at WISN-TV in Milwaukee and my step-dad is a magazine editor in Waukesha. I am addicted to hyper-media and am excited about the prospects for it in the future.
Why not...My name is Joe and I'm a junior in my first semester in the J-school. I want to write about music for my career and I worked doing just that for a newspaper and magazine in San Francisco this summer. As you might guess, music is my getdown. I am an editor for the music magazine on campus, emmie, and I have a radio show on WSUM 91.7 sunday morning at 10am playing really chill stuff to wake up and get going to. You can listen online at www.wsum.org.
Hi everyone! I'm Elissa Goffman, an undergraduate from Cleveland. I've never really posted a blog before, so here it goes!!
Hey, folks. I'm Rebecca Fischler, a third-year grad student in Media and Cultural Studies, in the Comm. Arts department. Besides studying and writing about the Internet, I've also been a professional web designer for the last couple of years, and lurking around the Web for a lot longer. You can call me a geek if you like; I prefer "enthusiast."
Howdy, y'all! I'm Joe Erbentraut, I'm 20 and a junior at UW. I'm pursuing a Journalism degree on the strategic communication track, and am also working toward certificates in Integrated Liberal Studies and LGBT Studies. I signed up for this course because (this sounds cliche, but...) it seems like everything is going online and I would like to learn more about some of the implications this has for our way of life.
Hi! I'm Mike Westling, a senior majoring in Strategic Communication and Political Science. I'm looking forward to this class because I'm hoping it'll be a great discussion on the intersection between media and technology, a topic I find very interesting, but rarely have the opportunity to discuss (it doesn't come up at parties a lot). I've been blogging for over a year and a half now and I can say I'm definitely hooked. Beware, Bloglines can become very addictive.
Hello everyone. My name is Ross Viland and I am a senior majoring in Journalism with a Strategic Communications emphasis and history. Judging from how long it took me to post on this blog, it is evident that a class such as this is needed for me to begin to communicate strategically. I think this is going to be an interesting class and it will be eye-opening to take a more analytical look at the hugely innovative and driving force that is cyberspace.
Hi! My name is Brigid and I'm a senior majoring in Journalism with an emphasis in strategic communication. I think the progression of the internet into so many facets of life is amazing. Personally, I run an Ebay venture and find myself connected to the internet for a few hours everyday (although I'm new to blogging). I'm looking forward to learning more about "new media".
Hey all, I'm a second year pro-track graduate student in Journalism. I have written for the Cardinal and the Cap Times about politics, madison neighborhoods, random events, and am wondering what direction my line of work will take me in the future. Only blogging experience I have is on livejournal, though I haven't updated it in nearly 10 months...oops
Hello, I am officially the class blogger moron, so I apologize for the delay of my intro. My name is Chelsey and I am a senior majoring in Journalism on the Strat. Comm. side, and Communication Arts on the Rhetoric side. I am an advertising account executive at the Daily Cardinal, and worked in a fabulous ad agency this summer in Milwaukee. I learned a lot about internet advertising this summer and am looking forward to really getting a grasp on the current, as well as upcoming success of cyber media.
