Tish Grier began her freelance writing career in 2005 with a huge leap of faith and a couple of blogs. Since then, she became the Editor of the Corante Media Hub (http://media.corante.com), has published several articles on blogging and interactivity, and was a panelist at the 2006 SXSW Interactive conference. Tish graduated from Smith College in '01 where she received highest honors for her critical analysis of American religious films of the 20th century. Along with her editing and writing, Tish consults and speaks on blogging and interactivity, and is a member of the selection committee for the 2006 Northampton Independent Film Festival. She maintains her own media-centered blog at the Constant Observer (http://spap-oop.blogspot.com).
