People to watch in Emerging Technology at SJSU: Richard Craig

Richard Craig
"If you saw me after I got back (from the Poynter Institute) it was like I got religion," said Journalism Professor Richard Craig. Craig spoke today at a brown bag session in the School of Journalism and Mass Communications at SJSU. Professor Craig attended the Poynter Institute Convergence for College Educators Seminar February 13-16, 2005. The topic was the convergence of broadcast, print and on-line journalism and how that is being reflected in the teaching of Journalism. Professor Craig has much more information about that visit available on-line.

The Tampa News Center, at the institute, is the home of the Tampa Tribune, WFLA-TV and Tampa Bay Online.  All three media outlets are produced under the same roof, at the same time with intermingling staffs.

Professor Craig has more to say about Tablet and mobile computing than came out at todays talk. As an aside Professor Craig said he discussed the recent visit to SJSU of Robert Scoble. According to Professor Craig they did not agree with Scoble's predictions of the demise of print based newspapers.
