Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

Well this Bangor Daily News article got me a little riled up: “UMaine picked to finish fourth in Hockey East coaches poll“.

Boston University is picked to come in second place this year … after Boston College!


What is Health Communication?

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

I stole this from the BU website, who in turn stole it from Healthy People 2010:

“The art and technique of informing, influencing, and motivating individual, institutional, and public audiences about important health issues.”

“The scope of health communication includes disease prevention, health promotion, health care policy, and the business of health care as well as enhancement of the quality of life and health of individuals within the community.”

Sounds good.

I’m going to College (again!)

I’m going back to BU, baby!

20 Years of Websites

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention this – the first website went live just over 20 years ago (August 6, 1991 to be exact). was the address of the world’s first world wide web page and server. (.ch is the internet country code for Switzerland, where CERN is).

As for me personally, I downloaded Netscape Navigator in late 1994 or early 1995 during my freshman year at Boston University. I was the first person on my floor to have an internet browser.

Of course, finding web pages was difficult back then, pre-Yahoo and Google … but we made due.

I’d like to find an estimate of how many active web browsers there were on January 1, 1995. I bet it’d blow your mind …

BU, Globe Rip Off Students

Friday, October 15th, 2010

And the winner of the most interesting use of college students as skilled labor without being called that and probably not being paid, thus replacing skilled laborers in their own field goes to … Boston University and the Boston Globe’s ‘Your Town’ sites!

Man, I am so glad I am not a journalist right now.
