Dear friends:

We have two digital events coming up at Columbia J-school I wanted to let you know about. More events info via @columbiajourn on Twitter:

One is the FREE annual Hearst Digital Media Lecture on Thursday night 6-9 pm, with TWO receptions! Рwith Amanda Cox, award-winning Graphics Editor at The New York Times, along with the awarding of the the Innovator Award by Mark Hansen, Director of the David and Helen Gurley Brown Institute for Media Innovation (Mark is new to the J-school and absolutely awesome Рworth going just to see him in action!). Many of you know I ran this program for 10 years, before I moved from the J-school to the Provost's Office Рhope you will try to attend and listen to Amanda. Lauren Mack <> can answer any questions you might have.  Details below.

The second event is my next social media workshop, on May 16 – run by the Continuing Education department and coordinated by Tatiana Rivera <>.

@SREE'S SOCIAL MEDIA WORKSHOP – NYC IN-PERSON & ONLINE FROM ANYWHERE: Social Media One-night Stand – advanced social media workshop, Thursday, May 16, 2013 (includes two weeks of online coaching, taught w/ @wordwhacker & @travelogged). Details: #cjsm – INTERMEDIATE and ADVANCED LEVELS. [Because of time-zone issues, many people who sign up miss the live session, but access the video recording and the online coaching.]
