A few highlights...

Rotolo awarded 'Technologist of the Year'

"King of social media and information science professor Anthony Rotolo connected Syracuse University to the rest of the world. He made the SU Facebook page, Twitter account, established a Foursquare partnership and now he’s made himself a name — by being awarded Young Technologist of the Year by the Technology Alliance of Central NY."

Prof. Rotolo speaks at Official Star Trek Convention

"When Star Trek fans gathered in Las Vegas, Nevada to attend the Official Star Trek Convention, Syracuse University School of Information Studies professor Anthony Rotolo was invited to share how he is using the culture and technology of the show to teach his class, Star Trek and the Information Age.”  

Rotolo on CNBC

During CNBC’s coverage of the Twitter IPO, Anthony Rotolo, Syracuse University professor, discusses the advantages of using Twitter as a learning tool.  

Prof. Rotolo & 'Who Class' in Washington Post

"A Syracuse professor of digital and social media is offering a class based on the long-running British science fiction series “Doctor Who.” Professor Anthony Rotolo plans to take an exhaustive look at the wildly popular British series... Because Rotolo’s class is an unofficial one — and also free — it’s open not just to the Syracuse community, but to the world at large."
