My new, new media, blog

Citizen - new media blogWell, it’s not everyday you get a new blog, and certainly not everyday you get to run it on the biggest news and information site in your State, so I figured I may as well crow about it a bit and invite you over for a peek.

Basically it’s me making baby gazelle steps into writing about new media in the context of my job at theage.com.au.

The name is a play all sorts of things, I’ll get to that later, but you should expect some critical and overly opinionated commentary on blogs, citizen media, online news sites and more.

If you’re of that persuasion you can grab the feed here.

Today’s post is all about how comments are way too overrated in big news sites – especially as they are currently done. Go weigh in :)

    I tried to contact you via email but received a 404 error. I need some help with a stupid mistake I made yesterday–I changed my status from administrator to user–HELP? Am I out of luck? Can you work behind the scenes to change me back?

    I didn’t realize what I was doing—I might suggest a warning box along the lines of “DO YOU REALLY WANT TO TERMINATE YOUR ADMINISTRATOR RIGHTS?” for dolts like me.

    thank you
