Social Networks – translating virtual engagement into political reality

NYU Kimmel Center, 60 Washington Square South, room 405

Speaker:
Andrew Noyes, Public Policy Communications Manager, Facebook, (Washington D.C.)
Interviewed by: Dr. Anthony Pennings, NYU-McGhee-DCoM

Andrew Noyes joined Facebook in 2009 after covering Capitol Hill, the White House, federal agencies, nonprofits, and think tanks as a member of the Washington press corps. In his current role, he nurtures relationships with policymakers, the press and the public and explains how the social networking giant helps its more than 500 million users share in a more trusted environment; helps makes the world more connected; and drives economic growth.

His areas of focus include expanding digital privacy protection through user control of data; enhancing cybersecurity and online safety; and protecting free speech. Previously, Andrew wrote for CongressDaily, Technology Daily, Communications Daily and Washingtonian Internet Daily where he specialized in intellectual property; Internet governance; antitrust and competition; and privacy and data security. He also launched and authored Tech Daily Dose, a popular blog on NationalJournal.com, and was a contributor to National Journal and Government Executive magazines. Over the course of more than a decade, Andrew also wrote news, business, and human-interest stories for a range of other publications including Washington, Capitol File, DC Magazine, the Baltimore Sun, The Advocate and more. Andrew has also served on the adjunct faculty at American University and has provided commentary for MSNBC, CBS, C-SPAN, National Public Radio, Federal News Radio and other media outlets.

Dr. Anthony Pennings has been at the McGhee Division since 2002 where he started the BS in Digital Communications and Media and teaches a variety of courses dealing with the management and politics of digital media and information systems. He has a PhD in Political Science and wrote his dissertation on cyberpunk fiction and electronic money. He also has a MA in Communications, both from the University of Hawaii where he was a Fellow at the East-West Center’s Institute of Culture and Communications doing research on computerization, media, and telecommunications issues in Asia. He got his first teaching position at Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand where he taught television production but returned to his New York home in the mid 1990s after he heard about the World Wide Web. At Marist College he taught Multimedia and Web production, feeding the New York area with hundreds of skilled web producers during the dot.com area. Last month he was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to teach digital media economics in Japan and revise his book on computerization in Asia.

Mechthild Schmidt joined DCoM in Fall 2003 after a career as animator and art director in broadcast, advertising and interactive media. A Clinical Associate Professor, she has initiated and run the CrossRoads series since 2004.

Anthony J. Pennings, PhD has been on the NYU faculty since 2001 teaching digital media, information systems management, and global communications.
