For the continuing education partnership between Baruch and the J-School, I’m teaching a Blogging Best Practices course on three Monday evenings this month. We had our first class this past week and the next one will be on April 25th. Based on a whole set of awesome questions I received from Olivia on Wednesday, I thought I might invite Entrepreneurial Journalism students to attend. On the 25th, we plan to discuss:
- Common terms to blogging
- Types of blogging and their characteristics (personal vs. corporate vs. publication vs. etc.)
- Introduction to WordPress, and how it compares to other platforms
- Legal, copyright and community considerations
Our class period starts at 6:30 pm on Monday, April 25th and runs to 8:30 pm. Jeremy mentioned you might be getting out of class early that day so I imagine you won’t miss much.
If you’re interested, please let me know by next Friday, the 22th so I hold your spot and send you the necessary readings.
BarCamp NewsInnovation – April 30th. BCNI Philly, now in its 3rd year, is a pretty awesome day of talking about innovation in the news industry. It’s a barcamp, which means the sessions are determined by the participants. Last year I got to hear about APM’s Public Insight Network and Peer News, an online-only, subscription-only startup in Hawaii. Best of all: it’s free!
I’ll be headed down there again this year and would love to have any or all of you join. Hit me with any questions you have in the comments.
Save the Date: Gaming + News Hackathon in NYC on April 22-23, 2011. Hosted at the J-School! Details to be announced; if you have any opinion on how it should be run or what the outcomes should be, let me know. I have thoughts on the matter as well.
