Knight Innovator in Residence

Knight Innovator in Residence Our initiatives help accelerate the pace of learning in journalism and communications education, preparing students for today's fast-paced media landscape.


It's my pleasure to invite you to a great event -- but first let me say that I was elated by the warm welcome you've given to this page and to the first post, about Miami's tech community. Your comments were very helpful and I edited the post with the new resources you mentioned.

I would like to invite you to join us for an exceptional event on Monday, March 23rd, at 1:00 pm. The FIU School of Journalism and Mass Communication will host a Hearst Distinguished Lecture featuring Sree Sreenivasan (@sree), the Chief Digital Officer at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

I met Sree last fall and saw him present in January; he shared a number of tips and tricks, was very informative, and was very well received by the audience. If you get the opportunity to meet him, you'll find that he is one of the nicest people.

Sreenivasan joined the Met in 2013 after spending more than twenty years at Columbia University as a full-time professor at Columbia Journalism School and one year as the university’s first Chief Digital Officer. In 2009, he was named one of AdAge’s 25 media people to follow on Twitter; in 2010 was named one of Poynter’s 35 most influential people in social media; and in 2014, was named one of the most influential Chief Digital Officers by the CDO Club. Sreenivasan will be speaking to our honored guests and our communication students about best utilizing time spent online and on smart phones, about building a fans and followers base, and about doing all of this in a smart, strategic, and sustainable manner.


The media has changed, now what? Which skills do I need for a career in digital media? How will this impact my work? What do I need to pay attention to? How do I make sense of what's happening ... and which business models are most viable?

People ask me these questions every day.

New technologies, social media, and especially smartphones changed the way we produce and consume media and impacted our careers in communications, from PR to advertising to marketing and in particular, to journalism.

The purpose of this page is to share information about new technologies and to highlight events, materials, programs, courses, research, and initiatives that shed a light on how communications professions can thrive in the years to come.

Thank you for joining this page and do let me know your thoughts! Please feel free to share, to comment, and to invite people here, this is meant to be a continuing and friendly conversation, like at a dinner table.

Let's get started ...
