Carolina on my mind

Mar 6, 2008

My former professor, Deb Aikat, invited me back to campus today to speak to his j-school class about blogs and other current issues in online communication. I found myself in a basement room of Carroll Hall, the very place where the Tar Heel Bloggers got its start in 2003. That group of UNC bloggers was the precursor to ‘BlogTogether”:

As class was ending, news was breaking across campus that the student body president, Eve Carson, was the young woman found murdered the day before in a quiet, residential part of Chapel Hill.

ADD: Dave DeWitt of WUNC put together this report about the campus response to Carson’s murder. It’s a beautiful and fitting tribute to Carson, who seems to have been simply angelic.
