- · Colette: We discuss highly problematic or controversial stuff going on in the world on a regular basis so she will be willing to listen and think about the subject.
- · Lexi: She has strong opinions on the privatization of many things and she considers herself a libertarian so her view on how this works in conjunction with WikiLeaks and the government should be interesting.
- · Kade: He is my husband and has to listen to me, BUT because he is unfamiliar with subject he is better suited to recognize things that need a better explanation.
- · Tracy Allen: She took a Women's Studies Theories class with me a couple years ago and now works for LDS media outlets so she has the humanist background as well as the digital print background.
- · Brent Gordon: He is my boss and an attorney so I am interested to hear his take on how the law influences his opinion on WikiLeaks.
- Lisa Johnson & Cheri Earl : They were the head editors/bosses during my time with Insight magazine and were in tune with traditional print mediums so they may have some strong insider opinions on how journalism/media may be affected by WikiLeaks.
- · Brittany Hargrave: She attended the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and interned with USA TODAY as well as for the Arizona Republic so I know she is an avid journalism enthusiast whose opinion will be influenced by her background.
- · Jaime Winston: He was my editor during my internship with Salt Lake Magazine and has probably been influenced by a social circle of journalists in his opinion of the WikiLeaks phenomena.
- · Jay Rosen - Dr. Burton recommended looking into him and it looks like he may have a couple pieces as well as a video on citizen journalism.
- · Ted Talk by Ted Jaspan: His TED talk is titled "A New Way to do Journalism" and it opens with him saying "Hello my name is Andrew and I am a recovering journalist," which tells me there is an interesting message there to dissect.
Social Media (many of my homies, peers, and enthusiasts above, would intersect here as well)
· My brother - As an internet savvy almost 16 year old, my brother has often filled me in on the latest social media trends so he would have a good handle on what your social media platform of choice means in the teen world.
· Cailley - She's my LA living broadcast journalism friend who does a lot of work for radio stations and brand promotion, plus she loves social media so she will definitely have lots to say.
· Brent Gordon - My boss' daughter is an up and coming young athlete known for being a girl who plays football with the boys. Brent has been really involved in running her social media campaigns so he might have some insight on social media tropes.
· Basam Salem: he gave a TED talk in SLC about how social media facilitates people's propensity to stereotype and I'm interested to see if there's any insight I can apply to my chapter.
