My name is Sharon Meraz, and I am an instructor for the class, Writing for Online Publications, and the topic for this Spring 2006 semester is “Participatory Journalism and the Personal Media Revolution.” I am a PhD student at UT Austin, and I study the disruptive collision between Web/Internet technologies and journalism as it impacts political communication, alternative media growth and influence, online journalism, and local/global interpersonal social networks. My main blog is called, Democratizing Mediawhere I examine how new technologies are impacting the mass media industry, interpersonal communication, and citizen journalism.
