I've been back in civilization for a couple of days now. I'm re-adjusting to life here in the USA – it is very different from the UK (you can wear shorts!). I've been reading a lot of the news that I missed while I was gone. Seems like nothing shocking happened, but there have been several good articles posted recently that got me thinking. I've get most of those posts written, I'll be publishing them shortly.
I've got photos from my trip as well, I'll get them edited and posted in the near future.
A couple of other notes:
- I wrote a paper for a class comparing the freedom of press in the UK and the US. It actually is interesting to compare the two countries from a journalist's standpoint. I'll clean it up and post it online.
- I've started to write a massive article on what I'm calling (for now) The Death of the Photojournalist. It's become a massive list of thoughts and research on the state of the industry today as it relates to new media. I have yet to decide what I'm going to do with this.
- Putting "Nickleback" into Last.fm gives you a wider range of music than you might think.
