Welcome to Lavrusik.com. I am currently in the process of updating and adding things to the site to make it fully functional. This site will serve as a place for me to blog on the changing technologies and how it applies to journalism. I am specifically interested in how social media can be used as a tool in journalism. I love all things online and will offer reviews of tools available out there, new applications and much more.
