12/31/2013: UO Matters more popular than Around the O for 2013
Here’s a little hint for former UO Journalism Dean Tim Gleason, now getting $218,524 a year to advise UO on “academic messaging”. While UO’s official “Around the O” blog reports almost 745,000 page views for 2013, UO Matters got 968,000, and I didn’t have to give away iPads, or spam the faculty and staff. Thanks, readers:
Maybe “Around the O” should post some public records and allow comments? Gleason’s year-long pre-sabbatical sinecure contract below, for example, got a hundred or so downloads, after I finally pried it loose from the public records office. And my post on Gleason’s presentation to the SPJ on UO’s wonderful public records compliance attracted many interesting comments, not all of them defamatory.
Full contract here.
