I’ve broadcast for twenty years, blogged for three, tweeted for less than one. (@BBCPhilippaT since you ask). I’m pretty nervous about starting an “official” blog, but it’s about time.
This is prompted by the Harvard Kennedy School, more specifically Nicco Mele’s course on Digital Media, Power and Politics. Assignment One, build a blog, and START WRITING!
So much of this will revolve around the conversations I’m having as a (lucky, lucky) Nieman Fellow in Journalism at Harvard this year. From July 2011 I’ll continue as a working broadcaster for BBC News. Hopefully with a lot more thinking done, having indulged in a lot more talk about what it means to be a journalist today.
Feel free to comment. Feel free to criticize. No abuse please. It’s a myth that journos have thick skins.
