Calling Aspiring Asia Journalists

I’m responsible again this year to try to track down Asia-based journalists interested in a fellowship, funded by The Wall Street Journal Asia in association with New York University, for the three-semester masters program in business and economic reporting at the NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute.

If you fit that bill, or know someone who does, please go or direct them here.

Journalism may be a profession in crisis, but the tools and skills acquired on a course like this will never go out of style.

Podcast on Making Music

Here’s something I recorded for the BBC World Service Business Daily show on recording music digitally. Email me if you’d like the transcript. (This podcast is a big file than normal; it’s longer, and it’s in stereo, because there’s a song in there. If you don’t like long podcasts and big files, I suggest you skip it.)

Podcast: Satellites and Publishers

Another in what I hope will be a more regular offering of podcasts, not merely recordings of my slot

on the BBC World Service Business Daily but also interviews and other snippets that came my way in the course of my work. This week: a look at hacking into satellites, via an interview with Bellua’s Jim Geovedi and Raditya Iryandi. A link to their actual presentation will follow shortly. Also in the podcast is an interview with Mark Hanusz, owner of Equinox Publishing, which just happens to be publishing my book. How many plugs am I going to make for this book before you complain?
