I offer my sincerest thanks to all those who helped me in writing Journalism and New Media. Ann Miller, my editor at Columbia University Press, offered more than three years of editorial guidance and encouragement in the development and evolution of the book. I am deeply indebted to the anonymous reviewers commissioned by Columbia University Press to comment on earlier drafts; their comments and insights were of tremendous value in shaping and refining my ideas and my analysis of the changing new media landscape and its impact on journalism. Adam Clayton Powell III, vice president of Technology for the Freedom Forum, offered a critique of the early drafts of the book that were of extraordinary value in making it clear in its focus. Seymour Topping, administrator of the Pulitzer Prizes and professor of International Journalism at the Graduate School of Journalism of Columbia University, has contributed immeasurably to the book, both through his editorial suggestions and with an eloquent foreword. My Columbia students, Pamela L. D. Peeters, cofounder of the Unit for Environmental Education, Columbia University, and Reuben Abraham provided valuable research assistance. Finally, my wife, Jackie, and daughters, Tristan Mariana and Orianna Magdalena, deserve special thanks for their love and support during the writing and editing of the book, especially during the late nights and early mornings when I headed off in the darkness to my computer.
