Kyle goes to Washington

I have been pretty involved over the past week getting ready for school to start next week, working on getting stuff ready for the Spartan Daily and the like. Then last Thursday I got an e-mail from the Washington Post asking if I was interested in coming to do an internship there this fall. So after a lot of careful consideration and a quick interview yesterday, it is now official that I am dropping everything going on here in California and I am moving to Washington, D.C. (actually, I will be working in Alexandria, Virginia) for the next four months. I am really excited. We are not sure yet when exactly we will be going out there, but it will probably be in about two weeks. I will be working with The WashingtonPost.Newsweek Interactive team on their hyper-local sites, podcasts and other projects.

This is a dream come true for me. The Washington Post has some of the coolest projects of any newspaper online and I will be right in the thick of it. I am also a huge U.S. history fan and have always wanted to visit Washington, and now I get to go for a whole four months.

There is still a lot of details to work out, but I am really excited to go. I will keep updating this blog with my adventures, projects and travels.
