Coming out of the Tardis (Pt. 2)

(The first part of this series was posted almost two years ago–it was one of the very first entries on this blog.  You can check it out here.  While I’m no longer deployed to Iraq–and I’ve since met several other warrior geeks–I still feel there is an unfair perception that while it may be OK …

The New Age of Journalism

(As part of my first class in my Masters in New Media Journalism, we had to answer a few questions…thought I’d share.)  What is Journalism?  This is a really interesting question… In my mind, Journalism is, quite simply…storytelling.  Put a fancy wrapper on it all you want.  Talk about objectivity and hard facts…but tabloids also …
