Projects

Here are some recent projects I’ve completed or advised:

  • Knight Digital Media Center. I help plan leadership programs for journalists, news executives and news entrepreneurs, and I write a blog, Leadership 3.0, for the center at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Southern California.
  • News University and the Poynter Institute. I helped develop online modules for frontline editors for News University in 2006 and 2007. I have been an Ethics Fellow and guest faculty in leadership at Poynter.
  • Jump Start Cambodia is an effort to bring XO laptops to children in a village where I live part-time in the Kien Svay district of Cambodia.
  • Nieman Journalism Lab. I was a development consultant in 2007 and 2008 on this collaborative attempt to figure out how quality journalism can survive and thrive in the Internet age. The Lab launched in October 2008.
  • The Newspaper Credibility Handbook,” looks at ways newsrooms can interact more effectively with readers. I wrote the book and co-wrote a discussion guide with Bob Steele of the Poynter Institute. The book was published in 2001 by the American Society of Newspaper Editors.
