Hello, all! My name is Jonathan Borden and I’m a graduate student at the University of Florida. This blog is part of my study of new media and democracy as part of my course work in the College of Journalism and Communications. Truthfully, although I’ve always loved the idea of blogs, I’ve never been quite so good at maintaining them over extended periods of time. This class should certainly foment and interesting showdown between my need to do well in the classroom, and my incredible inability to maintain focus. Fingers crossed on this one!
