I’m up early today because my mind can’t stop about all the cool stuff we’re planning this week. I was in the new building late last night setting up cameras for my big YouTube project. Alumni: Visit the YouTube/Apple tables where we have a camera set up to ask three questions:

*Where did you go after you graduated?
*What lessons have you learned in your career that you’d like to share?
*What is your fondest memory of the journalism school?

I recorded this little piece of video straight into YouTube last night — The audio is a little off, but I’ll work on that once my kids wake up and I can give them a couple of hugs before I leave the house for a long day.

Also, the coverage of the centennial continues since I last linked to a couple of websites. KOMU did a story on the centennial and a look at how journalism is changing. The project is reported by Ashley Reynolds (who graduates in December) and field produced with some help from Robert Kessler (who is a sophomore). Ashley put together a HUGE project researching autism and the many sides of that challenging illness. Anytime she takes on a project, you know it’s going to be big. If you’d like to meet her, let me know!

The Columbia Missourian previewed the centennial event in this article. Learn about a documentary viewing that is part of the centennial event, learn about the big barbecue that kicks off the centennial excitement tonight, an investigative journalism panel during the event, the centennial song, a comedic play on journalism ethics, and how the economy is keeping journalists from attending the centennial event. Be sure to click on the paper’s Centennial Visitor’s Guide link on the right hand side of this blog – It’s under the title “Helpful Links.”

If you know of any centennial coverage I’ve missed, let me know!!
