As soon as I got into his office at the School of Journalism in the CMA building, I realized he is not only dealing with news issues as a UT Professor and his Knight missions in journalism… I mean Rosental Alves is the news:
Me and Paulo attended his first Online Journalism Workshop at FCSH in 2008 – there we created the loev project, which we continued developing and presented at Future Places exhibition. Loev got a commendation for “commercial potential” – what else could we wish for a startup project?
It was nice to meet again last year to present the loev case study to the workshop participants, and for a welcome lunch with the workshop alumni. Rosental was glad his workshop in Portugal is confirmed in June 2010 – so am I, we’ll meet again in Lisbon :)
Keep the suggestion: for the ones who didn’t attend the Online Journalism Workshop yet, beware – it’s an opportunity not to miss!
Meeting with Rosental was very enlightening: after presenting the RTiVISS ongoing research, I had his feedback with precious advice on the opportunity of studying in the US and further contacts at UT in case I’m implementing the Amazon case.
I was wondering about all the mexican style food I’ve been eating in Texas, then Rosental made it all clear: it’s not the Mexicans that are influencing Texas, but the Americans that overtook mexican frontiers.
I got a “shower” of history, followed by unpredicted tropical showers to get back to the car after a radical vegan lunch ;)
So the raw description applied to ALL vegetables, including broccoli? “Crudite”, remember that when you order the day’s special at one of the fanciest natural-organic restaurant in Austin. Well, the result was an invigorating lunch combine the vegetables with 3 different sauces and several entrée cookies – no diet, and a lot of fun with a special witty Brazilian friend :)
