Kent State's shotgun wedding convergence resource

Kent State’s School of Journalism and Mass Communications has put together a web site that looks at how they’ve “converged” their student media into one big happy family (right?).

You can follow their adventures through the planning stages and on into the second year of the experiment.

It’s worth a read, and a lot of information to digest. Of course, one major hurdle that isn’t really addressed is the situation for college media that isn’t tied into the j-school – like Va. Tech, or Vanderbilt (neither of which have a j-school) or Florida (which has a j-school, but the Alligator is independent of the university).
