Re: Neat or Not?

I drove up to Boulder today to speak to a journalism class about new media and old media and media in general. Mostly it was a walkthrough of how I got from point A to point B. Point A being a career in dead tree publications and point B being Kotaku. Lots of questions about what a person should do to get a job in journalism, to which all I replied: Write!

Write, write, write. Oh, and write. You can be a master at HTML, amazing at Flash, spectacular at navigating websites or conducting interviews, but unless you can write don't expect to get a job. Well, I don't count. But in general, you need to practice writing.

Man, I don't envy those J-School students, graduating in a month to six, in the center of a swirling recession. No... Thanks.
