Steve Outing: history of projects

Hello! I’ve worked on a large number and variety of projects over the two decades since I became a specialist at the intersection of journalism/news/media and the Internet/digital-media/digital-news-innovation. This is not an exhaustive list of my projects and professional activities, but includes most of them. (Excludes my time in print journalism, pre-1994.) -Steve Outing
