CNN and Georgia Tech are exploring ways to use drones in journalism

It’s not a bird or a plane or a man in cape or even a UFO.

Talking in circles: A UGA prof studies Twitter speak

Video of the Day: T.I. raps at the Tony Awards

Sunday night television in review: Lebron James returned to the NBA Finals, contributing to a Heat victory for Game 2. A fourth-degree black belt, Nia Sanchez, was crowned Miss USA.

Video of the Day: The Walking Dead as an 80s sitcom

The Walking Dead already has been given the House of Cards treatment, so it's inevitable that a total mood-swing parody would follow. Matin Comedy envisions TWD as a Full House-esque 1980s sitcom.

Celebrating Celestine Sibley’s centennial

“Child, what are you up to?” Instantly recognizing the voice behind me, I froze midway into shoving the crumpled dollar bill into the brown interoffice memo envelope. It was the morning of October 3, 1995. In Los Angeles, the verdict was about to be read in the O.J. Simpson trial. And on the eighth floor of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Features Department, I was collecting up the office pool.

The voice behind me belonged to Celestine Sibley, a newspapering icon and state treasure. Red-faced, I explained to “ma’am” what in the hell I was doing (I never, ever called her Celestine. I had grown up reading her, after all). She toddled off and I assumed she was on her way upstairs to demand that the publisher fire me and then tie me to printing presses in the basement and use my blood to pump out the afternoon’s Extra edition. A minute later, Celestine handed me a dollar and said, “Put me down for a guilty.”
