15 Minutes of Fame


The Internet is a crazy place. My “Oh, Snap!” post was quoted in a Nieman Lab article about the new Snapchat update! I feel so lucky to be quoted, by name no less, on such a respected news source.


Had I known I was going to be quoted by the Neiman Lab I probably would have written a little more eloquently. But hey, I guess that goes to show you that you should think about everything you post on the Internet because you never know who is going to see it. Lesson learned.

For those of you who don’t know the Nieman Journalism Lab is “an attempt to help journalism figure out its future in an Internet age.” The website is associated with Harvard and is followed by journalists nationwide.

That’s right, I said Harvard. I was quoted by Harvard. Yes, I’m still in shock.

I can’t say I did it on my own, however. This wouldn’t have been possible if my professor, John Robinson, had not tweeted links to me and my other classmates’ articles about Snapchat Discovery. It also doesn’t hurt that he is good friends with Joshua Benton, who runs the lab.


Either way, this was definitely the most exciting email I have gotten in a while.
