: New big-time blogs are sprouting up like mad — first Elizabeth Spiers and company, then Nick Denton and company, and now Steven I. Weiss — one of the most energetic, talented, dedicated people I’ve met in this world — is launching a new venture: CampusJ.
Starting today with four Manhattan campuses, the project will train a young generation of Jewish journalists in the reporting styles and methods of new media, while giving them the training and opportunities to enter the journalism workforce better-equipped than many of their fellow-classmen. In an on-going recruiting process, CampusJ will be adding campuses and bloggers continually after the launch.
The site features a main blog covering Jewish campus news, and a series of sub-blogs focusing on individual campuses. In the coming weeks and months, the site will add classified advertising and other dynamic features.
Steven is a good guy so give him some link love, please. He didn’t ask. I’m asking. This is a guy to watch.
