Cancer, the internet, and identity: my talk with Kevin Sites' Hong Kong Univ. Journalism and Media class

My old friend Kevin Sites, with whom I collaborated on one of the earliest "war blogs" when he was an Iraq war correspondent for CNN in 2003, is now teaching a Journalism and Media studies class at Hong Kong University, "Internet, Media, and Society."

Kevin asked me to join the class via Skype to talk about identity and the internet, and we ended up focusing on my sharing the experience of cancer diagnosis and treatment over the last couple of years.

The video quality isn't great—it was hotel internet on my end—but I enjoyed the opportunity to share with this bright group of young people. Thanks, guys, and thanks, Kevin.
