Hello Mr. Anderson

The Poynter Institute recently posted an interview with Doug Anderson, dean of Penn State’s College of Communications.

If you’re reading this blog, chances are you’ll enjoy the questions and his answers. Here are some highlights:

But in a time of profound change in the structure, content and dissemination patterns of media, the fundamental skills of investigation, analysis and communications through written and visual media remain.

The changes are in tactics, not in goals.

Most of the foundations that historically have supported journalism education continue to do so, although most of them will not have as much money available to distribute in the months ahead. Direct financial support from the news industry has largely dried up, and it also has slowed considerably within most of our other revenue streams. These things always have been cyclical; we’re hoping for a good bounce back, sooner rather than later.

You can find a brief biography of Anderson here.

{Also, we couldn’t help but thinking of this Matrix quote: “You hear that Mr. Anderson?… That is the sound of inevitability… It is the sound of your death… Goodbye, Mr. Anderson…”}
