Road Trippin’ to O-HI-O

By |September 15th, 2017|Uncategorized|

On Friday at 9pm myself and one of my best friends decided to buy tickets to a football game taking place on Saturday 13 hours away. An hour later we left and drove through the night and the next morning to get there. My buddy Chris and I are no strangers to road trips. We’ve... Continue reading

Where are we gonna go now that our twenties are over?

By |August 22nd, 2017|Uncategorized|

I had the pleasure of enjoying three life events yesterday: I witnessed a (partial) solar eclipse that was (for the contingent US) 38 years in the making . The first day of classes and thus my first official day as an Assistant Professor for the Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication. I turned 30.... Continue reading

By |August 8th, 2017|Uncategorized|

For the past four years, I’ve assisted with OU’s annual Deans’ Retreat with both design and organization. The retreat brings together over all of our academic college deans and the Provost’s Office for a couple day event structure around vision casting for the year, learning from each other, and team building. For the past three... Continue reading

A Web Diet: Converting WordPress Sites Over to Static Sites

By |August 7th, 2017|Domain of Ones Own, JMC3433, Wordpress|

Over the years, my main course web project, PR Pubs, has became one sprawling beast. For the most part, people know as the homepage for the course, but I haven’t actively used that space for a few semesters. Thus, in May I made it one of my summer goals to rework in such... Continue reading

The Offline Web

By |July 7th, 2017|Uncategorized|

I was asked to speak to a delegation of community radio journalists from Bangladesh next week. A description of the group: Participants will return with improved journalism fundamentals, understanding of the United States and American culture, and a perspective on convergence with and transition from terrestrial radio. This understanding will include the role and contribution […]

On Liaisons

By |June 12th, 2017|digciz, Music|

This post follows both a thread of blog posts from Amy Collier, Kate Bowles, and Maha Bali and (I think at least) contributes to a larger week-long conversation taking place in #digciz, which I’ve yet to quite figure out but describes itself as a conversation. I like that. There are a couple different pieces here. […]

Small is Beautiful. Metaphors and Other Musings from #Domains17

By |June 9th, 2017|Conferences, Domains 17|

I’m recovering from the week that was #Domains17 and want to thank everyone from near and far to took the time to come to Oklahoma City and be a part of this conversation, particularly Jim, Tim, and Lauren from Reclaim Hosting who suggested OKC. It’s likely that part of being an Oklahoman is wanting to […]

Summer of Domains Love

By |May 24th, 2017|Domain of Ones Own, Domains 17|

I’m just getting to the point of the summer in which I have about two weeks to catch my breath before the bulk of my summer work activities get underway. This break allows me enough time to quickly catch up on some blogging I’ve been wanting to do. We just wrapped up our fourth academic […]

Testing out a new grade scheme

By |May 15th, 2017|JMC3433, Teaching|

This semester, I tested out a new grading scheme for my face-to-face version of PR Publications. I’ve taught the class 10+ different times over the past few years, and while all of them have been different to some degree, this semester was different in that I completely eliminated numerical grades from the final grade equation.

I See What Google Did There…

By |April 11th, 2017|Uncategorized|

A few years ago, I read a book called What Would Google Do? I actually don’t recommend it. But there’s a little nugget that I took away that is the only reason I remember anything in it. It’s this quote: Google has turned commodification into a business strategy. It’s through this quote (and through a Coursera course […]
