Reporting on reporting the end of the world

It’s been a big couple of weeks for the apocalypse. In case your “apocalypse reporting” Google Alert has been lagging, I wanted to point to a couple of the highlights.

After I blogged about our Newsfoo session “Reporting the End of the World”, it was picked up by David Carr at the NYTimes: The World is Ending Please Update the Home Page. (Mr. Carr was in attendance at our little session, and a big part of why it was so fun / informative.)

The Media Decoder post set off a flurry of other posts on the Twitters and blogs, but before I could think my fifteen minutes was up, NPR’s On the Media came a’calling: Covering the Apocalypse.

(I’d love to be able to embed the piece right here, but I can’t seem to find the embed code on the page. Suggestions?)

It was a lot of fun to get to chat with Brooke Gladstone and to say the phrase “alien-hugging Democrats versus alien-killing Republicans” on the radio.

Thanks everyone who helped spread the word about this. Have any ideas for what I should do with “Reporting the end of the world” next? Let me know.

(Also, thanks to everyone who pointed out that my blog theme is “soooo 2007″. I know, I know.)

    I heard the NPR interview where it was explicity stated that ham radio would be the best communication method to use. I immediately showed this to my Wife as further justification for buying yet another ham radio. Pat KG6JSL
