NOTE: In this final post, I introduced Mark Jurkowitz, who served as the Phoenix's media columnist from mid-2005 to mid-2006, and who is now the associate director of the Project for Excellence in Journalism, in Washington. Lest there be any confusion, the current author of Media Log, now called Don't Quote Me, is Adam Reilly, as explained in the column at right. — DK, 12/14/07
THE LAST POST. Media Log made its debut in October 2002. I can't tell you what I wrote about, because the archives have been corrupted somehow. But I can say I've enjoyed taking part in the blogging movement and trying to figure out how this new type of DIY journalism can enhance and expand the role of a media critic.
The Phoenix's new media critic, Mark Jurkowitz, is planning to write some type of media-related blog, so please look for it on BostonPhoenix.com. I have no doubt that Mark will immediately establish an online presence that will make him a must-read.
I'm taking the summer off before beginning my new job this September teaching journalism at Northeastern University. If you'd like to know what my future blogging plans might be, please check in occasionally at DanKennedy.net.
It's been a pleasure writing for you. Thank you.
