I'm a tenured mass com professor at a small liberal arts college in Pennsylvania who studies automated behaviors (habits) and new media technology. Mostly I try to teach people how to write adequately. I lift weights, enjoy video games, and like taking pictures of food.

Unpaywall is a handy little open source project, available to use as a browser extension, which makes it easier to find open access copies of journal papers.

I just thought I'd share this here for those who may need it. I find it very useful!

You know it's the start of semester when .....

* projectors don't work
* parking lots are full
* students mill around in corridors looking lost
* there are lines at the coffee shop.
* projectors still don't work

You know I love to say "The Medium is the Message," what does that mean? It was something Marshall McLuhan liked to say-- what he means is that the medium of communication shapes the semiotic reality of the totality of communication-- so content is always shaped by the medium, because they have a figure-ground relationship. Medium is embedded in the message. The medium is an extension of us, *between* us. Now think about the medium of twitter. Now think about the medium of here. Better, huh?
