I’ll be discussing covering the Marathon Bombings and the Watertown manhunt amid a chaotic breaking news atmosphere this Saturday as part of a panel moderated by Northeastern University Professor Dan Kennedy.
This Saturday, May 4, I’ll be moderating a panel at the main branch of the Cambridge Public Library on how nontraditional journalism and citizen media responded to the Boston Marathon bombings. Titled “Covering Chaos,” the panel will be held from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. and will include:
- Josh Stearns, journalism and public media campaign director for the media-reform organization Free Press and an expert on verification and trust with regard to citizen media.
- Taylor Dobbs, a journalism student at Northeastern University whose coverage at the finish line and again in Watertown was featured on the website Medium. Dobbs wrote about what he learned in a recent guest post for Media Nation.
- Catherine Cloutier, a producer for Boston.com, the Boston Globe’s free website, which was a crucial source of information in the aftermath of the bombings. Cloutier was among those posting to the site’s live blog.

Things will be slower around here, at least for this semester, as I’m blogging (for a class but also just to blog) on The World Exposed, which discusses WikiLeaks, secrecy, and such.
I’ve got a busy semester otherwise as well. Three journalism classes that require reporting and an Arabic class will slow this down, but I hope to keep posting a bit still. In the meantime, check me out on twitter.
Thanks for reading!

Unlike previous blogs I’ve tried to start and run with no focus or goal, I’m writing here specifically to share my work and attempt to improve it as I go. More generally, I’m here to talk about journalism. How will news organizations support themselves by the time I graduate? What will “news” look like? Will I ever have anything published on real paper?
I don’t know, but I know I’m part of the wave of journalists that will be making these decisions, so let’s start the conversation.
