SPJ/ONA DePaul adviser Mike Reilley is part of the Google Glass Explorers program. He and his winter quarter journalism students have been experimenting with the prototype glasses as a tool for gathering news. They’re discussing story ideas, ethical concerns and new storytelling methods.
Stay tuned as our SPJ/ONA DePaul student organization may hold some Glass events in the future.
Reilley also is documenting his findings and research on his blog, IamNotaGlasshole.com.
As soon as I think I’m finally content with the gadgetry in my life, I get an opportunity to try Google Glass. @journtoolbox

Despite wind chills that hit minus-30 degrees, SPJ/ONA DePaul’s executive board met with the organization’s membership on Jan. 17 to review the SPJ Code of Ethics and begin drafting changes.
The exercise is part of the national organization’s first review of the code since it was last updated in 1996.
SPJ/ONA DePaul will meet again in February with members, and possibly some DePaul journalism faculty, to finalize suggested changes before sending them to the SPJ national ethics committee.
