SNCR is a global nonprofit foundation and think tank "dedicated to the advanced study of the latest developments in new media and communications, and their effect on traditional media and business models, communications, culture and society." The organization sponsors a range of research and publications all focused around researching and communicating the changes going on all around us.
In a news release today, SNCR announced the 2011-2012 Fellows, including:
The new class of SNCR Fellows includes: Jeffrey Edlund, CTO Communications and Media Solutions, HP; Jennifer Edwards, assistant professor of communication studies, Tarleton State University; Atanu Garai, consultant for India’s Population Council; Egle Kvieskaite, EU project manager, Vilnius Pedagogical University and director of the Lithuanian College of Democracy; Alicia Nieva-Woodgate, managing director, ANW Networks, LLC; Ingrid Sturgis, assistant professor, Howard University; and Dan York, director of conversations, Voxeo Corporation.
We join a rather impressive list of existing Fellows that consists of, as the news release says...
more than 100 Founding Fellows, Senior Fellows and alumni who are business leaders, scholars, professional communicators, members of the media, futurists and technologists from around the globe. The SNCR Fellows collaborate on research initiatives, educational offerings, and the establishment of standards and best practices focused on the advanced study of emerging trends and developments in media and communications, and their effect on business, media, culture and society.
Given that the SNCR Fellows program is highly competitive with only a small percentage of applicants being accepted each year, I am both humbled and pleased to be joining the ranks. I look forward to working with the other SNCR Fellows and continuing to tell the story of how both the ways in which we communicate and the tools we use are all changing.
