I am a college freshman in Colorado taking a Journalism and Mass Media course. This blog is a semester long assignment for that class.
I am excited by the potential of the crowdfunding phenomenon to spread democracy, allow more voices to be heard, and shake up the traditional top-down publishing status quo. However, I am also apprehensive of some of the challenges and pitfalls this new publishing model will have to overcome to survive.
I enjoy writing, reading, anything challenging to think about, collecting music, quirky people, and cuddly animals.
