Henry M. Lopez
I'm an Internet newsman, strategist and developer. My interest in technology and news goes back to my childhood in Cucamonga, California, where I took apart my toys and first 8-track to figure out how they worked. My future in tech was sealed when I received my first computer - a Commodore 64. The last thing I ever did with that machine was write my high-school graduation speech.
My first job was as a newspaper carrier in sixth grade. About 20 years later I became a reporter in Santa Fe, New Mexico and eventually became the company's development and digital-projects manager.
I've held fellowships with the Inland Press Association and Maynard Institute for Journalism Education. I've given Webinars in using analytics data in news organizations from Inland and taught at the Maynard Multimedia Editing Program in 2010 and 2011. In 2011 I'll be teaching online news techniques at the National Association of Hisapnic Journalists convention. I am also one of the organizers of the #wjchat gatherings Wendesdays on twitter.
