universmedias.com and a moment in the sun.

Before you even say it, yes, the photo above is yours truly and the person who took it - Philippe Gammaire - already appologized for its poor quality... Thing is I don't even look better with better cameras to be honest. And yet, here I am! I have recently met Philippe on the last day of his seminar about creating and keeping a blog that he gave at the Academie Libanaise des Beaux Arts (ALBA - University of Balmand) one of the two universities where I teach.
Phil is a journalist and communication consultant and is a workshop leader for CFPJ. His website Universmedias is a timely analysis of the effect of the web on journalism and its changing notions. He says of yours truly "Une belle rencontre dans les couloirs de l'ALBA : Tarek Joseph Chemaly. Professeur à l'Alba c'est aussi un blogueur passionné. Son blog vaut le detour: il analyse la publicité à Beyrouth, ses liens avec le cinéma ou la vie politique du pays. Très fin. Une référence dans le Moyen-Orient et au-delà. Tarek est régulièrement invité à intervenir dans un certain nombre de colloques internationaux."
