In anticipation of the upcoming Tryptophantastic week, I offer this video (from Zachary Seward of the Nieman Journalism Lab at Harvard) to explain my job, which on this particular October night included a Boston gathering to talk about the Knight News Challenge:
Yes, Mom, I’m actually paid to talk online and offline about the incredible projects Knight Foundation funds. And in the video I’m sitting next to rock star community developer Lisa Williams of Placeblogger. At the Berkman Center. At Harvard.
On behalf of Knight, I talk in little bits and in bigger bits. Lately, I’ve talked with people I really admire about government transparency, alternative online video players, communities rallying around a protester, and volunteering using your phone.
It is a great job. Thanks for telling me that I could do anything.
