Hitting the road
I’m leaving Sunday morning for a brief sojourn in New Jersey to participate in a planning meeting for MediaCommons. Generously supported by the Institute for the Future of the Book, MediaCommons is a work-in-progress trying to be many things – a scholarly community, an online outpost, an alternative publishing model, a leader for public intellectual engagement, and probably a bunch of other things still unknown. With such lofty ambitions, I’m sure there will be some bumps in the road, but hopefully some of our endeavors will take hold & be quite transformative to the future of media studies. I’m really excited to be in on the ground floor – I hope to be blogging about the planning process for the next few days, and there will certainly be postings on the MediaCommons site, so play along at home & chime in!
