The inside is just how I knew it would be. The sunlight beaming in from the large windows on either side of the front door illuminate the room and the candy wrappers all over the coffee table. Empty soda cans and a few beer bottles were lined up on the edge. The television was broadcasting an episode of Sports Center and the volume was loud enough to be heard from every room in the house. There was noise coming from the kitchen, that was out of place.
I started this blog a few years ago and have never kept up with it. It was suppose to be my online journal but like every time I try to write I never make it a habit. I'm a better reader than I am a writer. However, the few times I have used my blog… Continue reading Impressions
This semester flew by and was filled with so many interesting and relevant topics. I truly learned so much about the digital world and how it impacts my everyday life. With so many great topics it's hard to focus on just one, but I think big data will continue to impact the projects I work… Continue reading Looking Forward
Can you see the future? If you can, that 's amazing and I have questions. But if you can't, that's cool too. I can't either but I still have questions and ideas to get out.

I remember when I wanted to be a journalist. A sports journalist to be specific. I was a huge baseball fan and all I wanted to do was keep up with the Houston Astros.

Big data. What does that mean? Well, really all the information that gets released everywhere. It's an outstanding concept and really can be a fascinating discussion. Beyond all the numbers and tables, there are so many avenues that we can take this data. As I have been thinking of ideas for this post, I keep… Continue reading Big Data – What else can we do?
I recently read Kristal Brent Zook's article Blacks own just 10 U.S television stations. Here's Why. I have never taken the time to ponder who claims ownership of my regularly viewed TV stations, but Zook's report left me with questions. It is usually nothing new to hear that minority groups are still under represented in a… Continue reading Media and Diversity
A few days ago, one of my colleagues trashed her dictionary. It was a dinosaur copy with a missing front cover, yellowed pages and paper clips holding the sections together. So now with a book in the trash, she set out to the campus bookstore to purchase a new one. When she came back I… Continue reading I’ll Keep My Hard Copy
Social media is taking over. It's no longer only a way to keep in touch but also a place to find information. It can be about an event, a topic, or even a person. This media has catapulted to new heights, but what really makes a site social? Have a way to build a profile… Continue reading Lets Get Social
Remember when McDonald's would ask if you wanted fries with your burger? Well of course I do-I guess they finally figured that out and stopped asking. This is how I imagine the future of the internet. As we continue to battle #fakenews, if a media literate audience is loud enough to say "yes, we want… Continue reading Would you like credibility or security with that?
I’m sure from the photo I’ve attached with this post that you know I’m team iPhone. I’m really more than that. I’m team Apple for basically everything. I’m satisfied with the products, service and the capabilities I have with the devices the company produces. All of that to say, as our world continues to become… Continue reading It’s like an Apple Store
