8 Weeks to Go!

April 10, 2010  •  Leave a Comment

This week….well…..this quarter has been a busy one! I’m pretty done with these 20 credit hours and all of the other work on top of that. The weather is so beautiful….or so I hear! …Ha Ha!

On a lighter note, though, things were rather exciting this past week. To start E.W. Scripps College of Communication hosted the Schuneman Symposium on Thursday and had a wide range of speakers primarily focusing on New Media (Twitter, Facebook, Blogging, etc…). The Keynote, however, was Ana Marie Cox who is probably the funniest person I have heard in a good while. I go to a lot of lectures and speeches and I can proudly say that I payed attention to this one. You can follow her on Twitter @anamariecox

This week Ohio University also hosted the annual Baker Peace Conference. I was asked to photograph the event that focused on Women’s Rights. The keynote for this event was Ayaan Hirsi Ali. I had heard of Ms. Ali before but to not a great extent. After hearing her speak, though, I was amazed. She is very well spoken and has gone through so much in her life……me being myself though…..I heard that she just purchased an iPad….so…..for the one on one time I had with her….we talked about the iPad!

She was kind enough to let me take a quick portrait of her….I wish I had more time to think about it…but her posture and the way she carries herself made for a decent photo!

So how is everyone liking the new website? The Senior and Wedding section is still in the works and hopefully will be up shortly…..keep checking for updates!

On a side note….I’m contemplating buying the iPad….if anyone has any comments or suggestions please let me know. I’ve pretty much decided that if I can type as well on it as I can on my laptop then I’ll buy one….what do you think?
