Former journalism student, current media studies student, currently employeed in communications at a major policy/practice research organization. Don't really know too much about this site's background -- truth be told, the few threads I've poked around in are kind of disappointing. Who are the reputable (i.e. smart and civil) posters to keep an eye out for? Feel free to ask any questions. I'm here to kill time and expose myself to a diversity of opinion.
