Visiting the Old and New of the New York Ad World

I just returned from a weekend in New York where, alongside my colleague Debbie Yount, I had the opportunity to lead a group of 15 students to see eight different agencies and media companies in NYC. All credit goes to Debbie for organizing and our greater alumni network who helped coordinate the visits. I wanted […]

What I’m Reading: The Power via John Stewart (external)

Over the last week, I read a novel called The Power by Naomi Alderman (link to a NY Times interview with Alderman). The general premise of the book is that women develop the power to harness electrical energy. This manifests in various ways like being able to shoot lightning from their fingertips, send blasts of […]

This post can only possibly appeal to about 12 people and only when they’re really in the mood for weedsy code stuff.

Omeka + HTML5Up via John Stewart (external)

I have been working on a couple of Omeka sites this semester. I really like the Omeka system for its handling of meta data and the Neatline map extension for easy map creation. Omeka S just came out and looks fantastic, though I haven’t had a chance to build with it yet. However, I do […]

Media and the End of the World (The Podcast)

Recently, Ralph Beliveau and I launched a podcast called Media and the End of the World. Podcasting is a medium I’ve wanted to delve into for awhile now and after a couple false starts trying to get one going, I’m really thankful Ralph asked me to join him in this endeavor. The format is fairly… Continue reading

Time for R via John Stewart (external)

R has become one of the most commonly used languages for computational stats and data visualization, so it’s […]
