Eager for class tonight. Come prepared to present and discuss the multimedia element of your final. See you tonight. Oh, and I have a surprise guest coming with me tonight. See you then. — JJ
A reminder that our guest speaker tonight is Jay Lovinger, long-form enterprise editor at ESPN.com. Jay attended SUNY-Binghamton in the 1960s. He worked for the Binghamton Press and Sun-Bulletin and wrote for trade publications. He worked for Inside Sports, a magazine started by Newsweek, and later Life and People. He was hired to help create Page 2 at ESPN.com and has been at the website since 2000. Please come ready with lots of questions. — JJ
A reminder that ESPN business reporter Darren Rovell will be our guest speaker for class Thursday. Please come with lots of questions. See you then. — JJ
I assume everyone is following the coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings — please pay particular attention to what is reported, how it’s reported, the discrepancies that appear in social media, etc. — and remember, it’s infinitely better to be right than to be first.
Oh, and look up the name Richard Jewell if you haven’t already.
And watch the documentary “Central Park Five,” which I think airs again tonight on PBS.
A reminder that Howard Bryant will be our featured speaker at class tonight. He’ll be talking about column writing and finding your voice. Please come with questions. See you later. — JJ
A quick check of your blogs shows several of you have not completed your assignment from our last class — writing at least 500 words on our visit from Bonnie Ford and T.J. Quinn. If you have not done so, you must complete your assignment by the end of today. Remember the rule: Deadlines — meet them. If you don’t complete your blog assignment, you will not get credit. — JJ
Class — no class tonight, given the snow forecast.
For next week, please come prepared to discuss your ideas for finals projects.
