If you are still having problems with Lynda talk to me on Monday. Together we will work this out so you can get your work done!

The School of Journalism and Mass Communications is going through accreditation and visitors will be on site Monday and Tuesday to get your input. For under grads they will be meeting with students by their sequence on Monday from 3pm to 4:15. Sequence Meetings, I am told, will have free Pizza & Soft Drinks: Journalism majors meet in DBH room 209, Advertising majors meet in 226, PR majors meet in 202. There is scheduled to be a Tuesday 9am – 10:15a meeting for all students. It is not known to me if this meeting will be in 133 or in 226 where our class meets.

APSC 63 or MCOM 63

If you are a Journalism, PR or advertising student and are signed up for the MCOM 63 section of this class and not the APSC63 section you should ask your advisor to verify that you are signed up for the correct course. I will be happy to give you an add code if you are not, but this should be done before the add/drop deadline. Please don’t delay in checking this out with your advisor.


I have decided to postpone the deadline for reading Read: “We the Media,” by Dan Gillmor. The assignment to read The Introduction through the end of Chapter 3. This is up through page 65 in the printed O’Reilly edition of the Dan Gillmor book is now due on Feb. 13 rather than Feb. 6. The other assignment are unchanged. These assignments can be found here.

The Associated Collegiate Press is having a convention in San Francisco Feb. 28 thru March 2. Some SJSU Journalism students are involved. According to their brocure:

You can expect professional, idea-packed and sometimes provocative or humorous keynotes, breakout sessions and workshops at ACP’s 24th annual National College Newspaper Convention. It opens on Thursday, Feb. 28, with some intensive workshops, a stimulating keynote address and networking receptions, and continues on Friday and Saturday with a full program of more keynotes, scores of breakout sessions, displays and critiques. The convention ends at 11 a.m. on Sunday after another block of breakouts, a final keynote and the presentation of the Best of Show awards. All sessions will be led by media professionals, accomplished student media advisers and a select group of student journalists.
