Let’s get caught up

With my sister Yulanda McCarty Harris, Director of the Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity at Youngstown State University

First off I’m thankful to be back on the blog.  It’s been a busy year so far but you really can’t tell that here.  So that will get better….promise.

Last week I was blessed to be a guest lecturer at Youngstown State University during their Black History Month calendar of events.

I also was keynote speaker at the Paris NAACP Heritage Banquet and a panelist for the White House Project Go Run Dallas event.

In Wednesday’s Dallas Morning News I write about the News Trinity River Bridge and how it will only live up to expectations when the river that runs through it fulfills its promise. If you’d like to read the first couple of paragraphs of this subscriber protected article be my guest.

This past weekend I spoke to the Entrepreneurial Journalism and Future of News Symposium held by SMU Division of Journalism and Dallas Press Club.  I had the chance to share the podium with Dallas South News new suitemate Mark Lowry from TheaterJones.com.

So I’m going to work on getting this info up before the fact, so now’s the time to say that I’ll be on a panel at South by Southwest on Monday March 12th titled The Hyperlocal Hoax: Where’s The Holy Grail.  Stop by if you’re in town.

Just finished Clay Johnson’s book Information Diet last night.  I also started listening to Johnson’s interview with KERA’s Krys Boyd today too.  Most of what they talked about is in the book, but if you haven’t read it, Krys does a good job getting an overview.  It’s really changing (process) the way I’m interacting with information in the couple of weeks since I started.

Of course don’t forget about my book Blogging While Black.  Find out what all the buzz is about and get your copy today!  It’s available at Amazon.com in paperback in for the Kindle.
