Help give JOUR 163 a makeover

Journalism 163 is getting a makeover! This former broadcasting class will debut in the fall as New Media in Journalism...and we'd like your suggestions on what it ought to include.

Interested? Then please join JMC alum and SJSU IT consultant Steve Sloan, who's scheduled to teach one section of the class, and Cynthia McCune, JMC webmaster, for a "geek dinner/meetup" at Tony Soprano's, 87 E. San Fernando Street, at 6 p.m. Tuesday, May 23. Sloan and McCune will spring for the first round of pizzas.

Here's what we want to know: How do you, as students (our customers!) envision such a class, and what would you like to see included in it? We'd like to hear from as many JMC students (and alums!) as possible to reflect the wide range of media interests and levels of tech experience in our School. In other words, you don't need to be a geek to come!

Sloan plans to record the conversation and podcast it...the first of what he hopes will be the first of several podcasts on this subject.

Be there or be square!
