A brief respite (for both of us) this week from “The making of a podcast” to let you know that the latest Dateline: RIT e-newsletter is available now at http://www.rit.edu/~930www/dateline/archive/dateline_dec06.html. The December newsletter includes links to “RIT in the news” stories previously highlighted on “Dateline: RIT – The Podcast,” along with other news story placements (such as Dr. Ron Hira’s recent New York Times quote about visas), campus news highlights from News & Events, and details about upcoming campus events (including a symposium, for which University News is a partner, on Advertising in the Digital Age, 8:30 a.m.-3:45 p.m. Monday, Dec. 11).
I also would like to use this opportunity to solicit your feedback about the e-newsletter. The inaugural Dateline: RIT e-newsletter was published on Feb. 1, 2005. It had evolved from an earlier monthly e-newsletter called News@RIT. Thanks to a “news clipping” service with which University News has a new affiliation, we now have the capability to easily provide subscribers with more frequent—and timely—alerts to RIT news-story placements. Is this something you would be interested in receiving? If so, how often would you like to receive “RIT in the news” updates: Daily? Weekly? Biweekly? Monthly?
