I retired a few years back. In this post-COVID world in which hedge funds are setting fire to newspaper companies to enjoy a little temporary warmth, I have not been motivated to chase consulting & training gigs. I'm preserving this website mostly to retain the 15 or so years of blog posts. I'm still reachable via email. I'm microblogging @firstname.lastname@example.org.
Digital journalism strategy and training
From coverage plans to writing style, the theory and practice of digital news can be challenging. We can help you and your team embrace the always-on, always-connected universe while retaining the values and objectives of solid journalism.
Social media strategy and training
Social media is your best frenemy. It's an audience-provider and an audience-stealer, an opportunity for connection but also division. From the rules to the tools, we can help your newsroom learn to thrive in a world where the social network is built in, not added on.
Web development and technology
With our extensive open-source technology background, we can help you embrace change, avoid vendor lock-in, and get custom results without falling into the custom-development trap. We can help guide you from concept through design, testing, implementation and deployment.
Content management and publishing systems
It's not enough to have a great website -- you need to embrace a complex mix of digital and print media. Our experience with online and print, vendor and open-source, standard and bespoke systems can help you create a sound plan, and our deployment and training experience can help you execute effectively.
