(Your humble correspondent has not been blogging a lot lately given preparations for this and some other seminars and for the new semester -- while trying to get the book finished. We're almost done. Look for "Principles of Convergent Journalism" By Jeff Wilkinson, August E. Grant and Doug Fisher from Oxford sometime this summer - I hope!)
