Never Trust Anyone Over 22

The career of two-time guest to my digital rhetoric class James Kotecki at has apparently come to an end, as Kotecki leaves for a career in public policy research and analysis for a consulting firm. I've used Kotecki as a case of successful creation of an online media persona by a college student, since the news is often dominated by campus rhetorical disasters. As articles in the Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, and U.S. News & World Report explain, Kotecki first rose to prominence as a Georgetown senior making videos critical of the presidential candidates' YouTube appearances and then capitalized on interest in his commentaries during the election.
