This morning, we’ve had a wide-ranging, quirky conversation about academic jobs, blogging and researching, media history, conferences, money, interdisciplinarity and more. I should acknowledge the particular contribution of Colin Maclay (managing director of the Berkman Center) in this session and generally; although the academic/teaching elements are cool and important, the practical advice helps too!

Ben Peters pitched a conference on Internet studies, media, history and more (evolving wiki page here). i’m quite excited by this prospect. (We should definitely get Ethan Zuckerman to give the five-minute history at some stage!). Watch this space.
