Our History

"NewMediaLiteracy.org was conceived and launched in 2004 as I struggled with what I felt to be my own intellectual laziness as a consumer of online news and information," says founder Jonathan C. Hall. He began developing The Daily Headhunt as a flagship for the kind of thing NewMediaLiteracy.org would attempt to provide: online experiences that force a user to encounter Web-accessible information sources — in this case, news feeds — in provocative new ways.
