Who needs ink? San Jose State podcasts

San Jose State University's Steve Sloan has produced a series of podcasts that talk about journalism education and new technology. A link can be found in the sidebar of this page.

Of particular interest to me was a 13-minute podcast entitled "Who Needs Ink?" That was the title of a presentation at the California Commonwealth Club presentation in San Jose that Steve attended in March 2006. Afterward he interviewed a number of people, including panel participants Dan Gillmor, author of "We the Media," and former Knight-Ridder VP Jerry Ceppos, about what the future of the media means for journalism education. The podcast could easily be used in a mass media survey course when talking about careers in the media.

A down note, though, was the last interview with a high school student, who after three years of "fun" working for his high school newspaper proudly claims he has no intention of working in the media.
