    Sree Sreenivasan, COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF JOURNALISM dean of students: Mr. Media Radio

    in Social Networking

    Journalism prof, dean, blogger and reporter Sree Sreenivasan makes Mr. Media look lazy!

    (Originally broadcast September 14, 2007) I don’t know about you, but I could spend hours on end doing stuff on the Internet, some of it productive, some of it, well, not.

    And some days, it’s hard separating the two because one is generally just as distracting as the other.

    I’m hoping that today’s guest, Sree Sreenivasan, can help all of us sort out the time-wasters from the time-benefitters. And no, I don’t think that’s a real word.

    Sree is one of journalism’s last great multi-taskers. He’s a New Media professor and dean of students in the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. But he’s also a technology reporter for WNBC television in New York City and a regular columnist for Poynter Online. Oh, and he is, naturally, a blogger too at sreetips.com.

    in Books

    Mattie, her friends and a wizard are hurled backwards in time to escape an evil serpentine creature of the underworld who they must ultimately defeat in Shoba Sreenivasan’s “Mattie Spyglass and the 8 Magic Stones” “Mattie Spyglass and the 8 Magic Stones” (ISBN 0985360402) is a dramatic and mythical work that will entrance children and adults alike. Shoba Sreenivasan creates an evocative story about an 11-year old girl whose world is forever changed when she comes across a mysterious spyglass. Mattie’s adventure begins in the year 1968 in the most ordinary of places: the basement of Sears in Hackensack, New Jersey. There the spyglass chooses Mattie as her owner catapulting her friends Eddie, Geeta and an old wizard named Mr. Herman Biddle into the dangerous River of Time. On the run from the serpentine Uri Gneezy, who would use the Spyglass’ magic to control the world, the wizard hurls Mattie and her friends through the past, from the time of the rule of the last Russian Czar to the evil winter of the Nazis. Uri Gneezy is aided in his pursuit by all the sinister creatures contained in the Black Book of Magic.  In opposition, Mr. Biddle holds the White Book of Magic which reveals the Enuma Elish, the Babylonian Book of Creation, and the daunting task before this intrepid crew:  they must cross the treacherous Path of the Virtuous, otherwise known as “The 8 Magic Stones.” Mattie is far from home and just a young girl, yet the challenges she face will summon a courage and maturity inside her she barely knew she possessed. To get out alive she needs to fight back against the forces of darkness. Shoba Sreenivasan is a forensic psychologist. She earned a doctorate in psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles and is a clinical professor at USC.

    Bangladesh in Crisis - a SAJA Briefing

    in News

    SAJA, the South Asian Journalists Association, representing 1,000+ journalists in the US and Canada, present their latest SAJA Briefing.
    Join Anup Kaphle, digital foreign editor of the Washington Post and Sree Sreenivasan, Columbia University's Chief Digital Officer as we discuss one of the biggest crises in four decades of Bangladeshi history.
    Our speakers: Maneeza Hossain, senior fellow at Hudson Institute, specializing in prospects of democracy in South Asia and the Middle East and has written extensively on Bangladesh; and Zain Al-Mahmood, a journalist based in Dhaka, covering Bangladesh for WSJ. His interests are politics, human rights and sustainable development.
    For the last 4 weeks, Bangladesh has been convulsed by the Shahbagh movement. What started as the protest of bloggers against a back-door deal between the government and the opposition Islamist party Jamaat-e-Islami, has mushroomed into continuous street protests against the war criminals of Bangladesh's 1971 liberation war. During the brutal war that gave birth to Bangladesh, the genocidal campaign of the Pakistan army was assisted by local Bengali collaborators, known as "razakars." In 2011, the Awami League government began long-delayed war crimes trials against some of the alleged razakars, most of whom are now top ranking leaders of the country's largest Islamist party, the Jamaat-e-Islami. But the unexpectedly lenient sentencing of Quader Mollah, known as the "Butcher of Mirpur," set off the protests that snowballed into Shahbagh, filling the streets with up to 500,000 protesters, mos
