  3. Thoughts on Hanging with Cornellians

    April 5, 2013 by Ian Perry

    This last week was busier than usual, and I didn’t have time to interview anyone. So, instead of a video, I’ve decided to discuss some thoughts I have about the Hanging with Cornellians series so far.

    Thoughts

    At first, the idea came from my desire to want to meet “interesting” Cornellians. I wanted to interview people from all different backgrounds about their passions and interests. One thing I’ve learned is that the term “interesting” is very loose. What you and I consider interesting is different than what someone else considers interesting. Therefore, one way to look at it is that everyone is doing something interesting.

    I think the main value of the series so far has been to showcase different aspects of life as a Cornellian. This is why I think it’s important to have students, alumni, and faculty on the series. Students give a unique perspective of what it’s like to be at Cornell right now, alumni can share their journey since graduating from Cornell, and faculty can share what they’re working on at Cornell.

    I’ve also really enjoyed asking everyone what their favorite thing about Cornell is, or what they miss most about Cornell. I think this really helps define the Cornell experience, and how people value being at Cornell differently.

    I also want to draw attention to hangingwithcornellians.shelby.tv, which in addition to YouTube, is another place that I’ve been putting all of the videos. It’s essentially a “channel” of video just from Hanging with Cornellians. As I interview more and more people, this will be an awesome place to go see all the videos. It makes it extremely easy to find the latest interviews, as well as the earlier ones.

  8. Hanging with Cornellians – Professor Tarleton Gillespie

    March 1, 2013 by Ian Perry

    I’m excited to announce that I’m starting a video series on my blog. Each week, I will interview someone who has some affiliation with Cornell, aka a Cornellian. This can be a student, faculty member, staff member, alumnus, etc. I’m hoping to feature a wide variety of people. Each interview will be conducted over Google Hangouts, and every Friday, I will post the YouTube video and a brief description here on my blog.

    Each video can be found at hangingwithcornellians.shelby.tv, which is a roll of video that I’ve created on Shelby.tv just for this series!

    Below is the first one in the series, in which I interview Professor Tarleton Gillespie. It was the first video I’ve ever uploaded to YouTube and I’m excited to share.

    Professor Tarleton Gillespie
    Professor Tarleton Gillespie is a professor here at Cornell in the Departments of Communication and Information Science. He has written a book on digital copyright, titled Wired Shut, and has two more books under contract that are set to be published in 2013. Professor Gillespie’s recent work has been on algorithms and how they relate to public discourse. In the following interview, I ask questions about the importance of algorithms in finding relevant content on the web.
