I've just completed my M.S. from New York University (SCPS) in Public Relations in Corporate Communications. In my studies here I have been very involved with and, in some ways, spearheaded the web presence of our academic program.
In 2006, I decided to start the nyuprprogram.blogspot.com blog, intended to be a way of reaching out to prospective students and the PR/Academic community at large by merging of the worlds between dull academic journals and readable blogs. I hope that my tone and content therein has always been thoughtful and informative but with a dollop of personalized voice that would make it more readable by others.I am particularly interested in the intersection between technology and organizing communities. While I may not have PR experience in the official domain, I do have experience within large corporations and my practicum involves presenting trends, tools (like RSS and various firefox plug-ins) and forecasting web 2.0 prognostications to Kiehl's management.
My capstone was on the academic theories of activation of the population on the internet and how Obama's campaign mirrored that effort.
