Kathy Gill is a writer, educator and political junkie who has worked inside government -- at the state and federal level -- as well as outside government as a state and federal lobbyist.
Currently, I write for TheModerateVoice.com and teach in the digital media program at the University of Washington. My personal blog explores issues of digital convergence, communication, digital journalism: WiredPen.
I've been online since the early 1990s, having discovered CompuServe before Marc Andreessen launched Mosaic at the University of Illinois in 1993. I ran one of the first political candidate websites in Washington State in 1995, when Jim Waldo made an unsuccessful bid for governor. I then rode the dot-com boom as a communication consultant who could speak web, until the crash. In 2001, I began my third career, as a full-time academic, first teaching techies about communications and now teaching communicators about technology. Since 2000, I have also taught newbies how to ride motorcycles!
Quote Of The Day (or Year or Decade!)
The religious persecution of the ages has been done under what was claimed to be the command of God. I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do to their fellows, because it always coincides with their own desires. - Susan B. Anthony
