Very good news for people in Hong Kong

Very good news for Hong Kong: Rebecca Mackinnon is going to teach at HKU's Journalism and Media Studies Centre.

"Democracy is not possible without informed public discourse. That discourse, I believe, can be best served by a combination of professional journalism as well as journalism performed by concerned citizens. I look forward to challenging my students to think about how they as professionals can best serve this public discourse - and how they can work collaboratively with concerned citizens who have other day jobs but who are for the most part eager to contribute to the cause of a better informed public."
