Knight News Challenge Interim Review

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

We recently collaborated with Kiss Me I’m Polish (with awesome illustrations by Papercut) to do a slide presentation and a series of infographics for the Knight News Challenge’s Interim Review of their 2007-8 grant winners. Here’s the Slideshare presentation:

Here’s my favorite slide from the deck, The Hacker Journalist (or Journalist 2.0), based loosely on Brian Boyer, a 2008 winner as well as a repeat winner this year.

At the Zeitgeist Panel: Human-Machine Interaction

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

Back in the heyday of the 90s tech bubble, I was the Design Technologist for FEED Magazine. When I look back on it, FEED was a wonderful place to be at that time because FEED took it upon itself to look critically at media and culture (a digital New Yorker, if you will, at a time when the New Yorker didn’t even have a website). Plus, the writers and thinkers that made up FEED were an incredible bunch of visionaries and future stars and ended up churning out a great number of amazing books. Steven Johnson (Editor in Chief) alone has cranked out 7.

Anyways, Freyja Ballmer, who sort of inherited my position at FEED after I left, asked me to talk at the first Zeitgeist NY Panel this past October. (Zeitgeist is a think tank/social club for digital people.) I gave a little talk on the future of reading. You can read more about what happened here.

BTW, this is Dan Paluska’s (one of the evening’s other speakers) stop motion video of that day and the event, which comprises the latter half of his day (I go on about 1:37 to 1:42):
