Burning the digital candle both ends at University of British ColumbiaWhat on earth compelled me to do this? Vertigo wasn’t the half of it. A blustering wind and perpetual rain were choices I’d rather not have to consider. Either get wet or prep for a Mary Poppins impression. I got wet. By the time I’d finished walking Google said I’d clocked up 15 km. A Good night sleep beckons today then. Two weeks in and the days appear to be racing ahead.
TTraditional journalism and their study programmes are broken. That was happening way before “fake news”. You knew that (read Why Journalism is Failing). So where can you go to future-proof your skills and knowledge? The idea was to conceive a progamme fusing multiple innovative disciplines, whilst collapsing the modular structure introduced en mass into universities in the 60s that has constrained learning.
WE RISE. We Rise. In times of conflict, the artist shows the way. Diverse rises. You know the score. You’re chewing at an idea, working all ends of the day, whilst keeping you day job and trying to retain a normal life at home. One O’clock sleepy bye bye morph into 5.30 wide the flippin hell awake. But the idea is there. Slowly it takes form. Others hear about it, contribute in selfless ways; some will come on board, others will wait. You press ahead.
@mbankolej@bonsuman@Africa2point0 Our quilt is woven by our mothers and fathers grand parents, family and friends, so that when we too add our thread, collected from the wisdom of you (plural), it's passed on. Thanks Max
Yes, I had orality down, and I know now why I thought where does it go. It's nuanced, but storytelling=oral storytelling c.f. Gilgamesh ( I think) We tell stories that are sphere of stories, at least the ones we know, so ah yes, oral stories is within the set of storytelling
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
