About Media Re:public

Media Re:public was a one-year research initiative to analyze the current and potential impact of the “non-traditional” news media. A project of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society, it was made possible by a grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. The resulting publications may be found (in .pdf form) at

I was incredibly privileged to spend a year as lead researcher on Media Re:public. Although I have now returned to civilian life, I continue to follow the work of the many people at Berkman and elsewhere whose thinking inspired and supported me on this project. In my part-time role as Senior Advisor to Internews Network, I’m aiming to bring what I learned in my year at Berkman to the world of international media development.

I continue to write sporadically on the Media Re:public blog about the future of journalism, the role of new technologies and other things that seem related to me at the time. Nothing on this blog should be taken as representing the opinions, positions or agendas of anyone but me personally.
