London cast of @HamiltonMusical was absolutely brilliant. The magic of @Lin_Manuel translates perfectly abroad. I am blown away by all the talent I’ve seen performing this musical.
 
I loved every second of tonight’s performance! Amazing cast.
Super excited to see this now in London! Four cities, two countries. Will definitely be checking the sound booth for @Lin_Manuel, since he was so sneaky in Austin. https://t.co/OQnQj4bvvv
Just saw Dennis Quaid with a guitar and a bulldog exiting the Austin airport.
Fantastic group of students in my Summer I Web Design class. Here are some screenshots of final Wordpress (self-hosted) projects - organization, activity or event site, with original content/multimedia. Plugins & custom CSS. Lots of creativity and problem-solving! #webdesigntxst https://t.co/Z3e1XADkJv

So sad I missed this!
From my last visit to Paris in 2013. 😓 https://t.co/XNz5JQe6Vt
I have been fortunate to accompany hundreds of #txst students/faculty at #ISOJ, providing them the opportunity to share in the concepts/networking. Concepts now present in our curriculum can be traced directly & indirectly to ISOJ, thus influencing the futures of thousands more.
For me, I wouldn't have gotten my @JSKstanford fellowship without having met @degarciaknight at ISOJ. And the direction of my research/curriculum would be very different without that experience & meeting people like @pilhofer, @clockwerks, @jbenton at ISOJ.
As @evanasmith said so eloquently on Friday, the "I" in #ISOJ might as well stand for "intimate." This carefully curated event always has the most progressive people of the moment. And you have access to them! Get to see them year after year, with ongoing online connections.
Here's why I attend conferences. #sxsw provides the big picture, a look into the future, emphasizes ideas, creativity. ONA hones those concepts into how used for journalism. #ISOJ is the community, the people, my squad. All have aspects of each, but each shines differently.
We had 28 @sjmctxst students and faculty attending #isoj2019. Using the #txstisoj hashtag, we made 141 tweets over two days, and here is what we discussed. Always appreciate the great content and networking. Congrats on 20 years! #isoj #isoj19 https://t.co/EqXAX9ovA2
