Monica Guzman

She’ll join us hour two on Thursday. Please follow bigblog and her on Twitter. Also,  please follow Kathy Gill and Mark Trahant on Twitter.

Mónica Guzmán is the P-I’s first online reporter and the main contributor to its new online project, the Big Blog.

She joined the P-I in January 2007 as a Hearst Newspapers Fellow, covering the culture of technology in a weekly column and a blog, Net Native. She took on the P-I’s Big Blog last July.

A product of her wired generation, Mónica obsesses over her Facebook profile and can�t remember what life was like before e-mail. She plays on the P-I’s flag football team and calls it a good afternoon when she can tinker with her piano and her Ibanez guitar — and a good evening when she can get out and enjoy the nightlife. A huge film fan, Mónica will often cry at movies people have no business crying in. She can’t cook, but she’s trying.

Mónica gives a weekly radio round-up of the week’s most talked about stories Wednesday afternoons on KOMO 1000 and serves on the advisory board for the University of Washington Information School’s Masters of Science and Information Management Program. She’s also what you might call an online news evangelist — giving talks about the future of journalism like this speedy guide she gave at Ignite Seattle on how to be an awesome news story commenter.

M�nica has worked previously at the Houston Chronicle, the Midland Daily News in Michigan and Foster�s Daily Democrat in New Hampshire, covering police and breaking news, higher education and arts and entertainment. She holds a bachelor�s degree in sociology from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine.

Mónica ‘s always looking for post ideas and can be reached by e-mail or phone at (206) 448-8381. You can also friend her on Facebook (just explain who you are) and follow her on Twitter (@moniguzman for the person, @bigblog for the headlines).

  1. Why don’t I Facebook? Check this out:

    For anyone who likes to upload photos onto Facebook, MySpace, or any other social networking site, pay particular attention to #4. For that reason alone, I won’t use any of those sites.

    However, Kathy Gill told me after class today that your Flickr pictures are safe. Cool.
