Where in the World am I and What am I Doing?

It’s been two weeks and a few thousand miles
since I last posted. I’m back. Some travel was work-related, some for
vacation. I’ve been learning about new technologies, resting and contending
with a break-down in technology. A power failure while I was updating the
system on my Macbook Pro scrambled my files and it’s taken a few days to
reconstruct them without losing this blog and tons of other files. So, believe
me when I write, I’m glad to be back here.

I’ve put a few thousand miles behind me since my last post two weeks ago. I’m back. Sometimes when I’m travelling and stop in different cities I wake up wondering where in the world am I and what am I doing? I think it’s a common problem. Some travel was work-related, some for vacation. I’ve been learning about new technologies, resting and contending with a break-down in technology. A power failure while I was updating the system on my Macbook Pro scrambled my files and it’s taken a few days to reconstruct them without losing this blog and tons of other files. (Yes, I did have a backup but there were problems restoring the system files without losing data, so rather than doing what I usually do–act precipitously when I’m impatient–I took the restoration process slowly and carefully to avoid losing important data and preferences.) So, believe me when I write, I’m glad to be back here.

I will pick up on the theme of converging media and changes in media, especially metro dailies, news weeklies, cellphones and digital in my next post. The U.S. is behind the curve on some of these while it leads in others.

These changes are affecting us in many ways, some subtle, others routine, and still others are life-changing. I’m getting my thoughts in order and will get back into the stream of these thoughts with my next post in a short while.
