  1. Hi, I’m a journalist degree student and am currently writing a feature about the effects of social media on the practices of journalism. Obviously since the introduction of Web 2.0, there is a lot more opportunity for use of social media. Do you have any opinions on how social media has affected professional journalistic practices – as a reporter for a publication or a free-lance journalist?


  2. My name is Patrick Quinn and I recently listened to you speak when you visited WVU April 5th. I was pretty inspired by the way you started from basically nothing and took ideas and ran with them to eventually make yourself successful. With that being said I have a few questions I would like to ask. I have an invention for tailgates/the beach/concerts etc. that I know will be successful. I have already sold a few of my products but don’t know how to go about getting the name out their on the market? I also really need to create a website for this invention (and I checked if the website name I would like to use is available and it is) where it accepts master/visa cards online. I am a business major here at WVU and know I have the face to face sales quality that leads to a successful business but am completely lost on how to build the technical things that really expand the business. My invention/game has potential to make a lot of money and was wondering if you could help me out with a few tips if you get some free time? Thanks a lot,
    Patrick Quinn

  3. Hi Patrick – I’ll send you an email.

    The original domain I wanted for Spot.Us was Spot.Org – but somebody owned it (and didn’t want to sell).

    So even if your domain is taken – don’t lose heart.

    Email to come soon.

    I replied to your last message on the Breitbart article concerning Siskiyou County. I’d be interested in continuing the conversation if you’re willing. Thanks.

    And I’ll check out this site of yours to. It looks as though you’re up to something good here. Keep working at it…I’m impressed.

  5. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now
    each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Appreciate it!

  6. Hi Dave –

    I am a grad student at American University in D.C. and am writing a piece on using Instagram photos in news stories. I would love to hear your thoughts on the subject. Do you have time for a quick chat in the next day or two?


  7. Hello Dave,

    I need some information from you to put on Poynter.org’s About Us page under the adjunct faculty listing.

    Basically, what title and email to use and whether or not you want a headshot to show.

    Please let me know so that I can update the page.
