Welcome

I'm Jonathan Oatis, a Reuters editor and forrmer adjunct professor at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism. I have taught computer-assisted reporting -- Internet, spreadsheet and database techniques -- to students at the j-school, fellows in the school's Knight-Bagehot economics and business journalism program, my Reuters colleagues and employees of various clients.

I work in New York and live in suburban New Jersey. I have been a professional journalist for more than 27 years, including 10 years with The Associated Press and 16 with Reuters. Here's my resume.

I'm a second-generation journalist. My father, William N. Oatis, worked for The Associated Press for 47 years, including 30 years at the United Nations and a stint in a Czech prison that made him a martyr for press freedom during the Cold War. If you are interested in learning more about him, please see my William N. Oatis memorial Web site..

My sixth Web site (I can't stop) is a blog called The Dashing Commuter, about living in New Jersey and working in New York City. My first  blog was about living in London, where I was based before moving to Bangalore, India. That led to my second blog, Bangalore Torpedo, a newcomer’s view of India. And, my third blog, Shock Culture Reverse, about moving from India to New Jersey.
