When humanitarians, tech and media join forces: discovering CDAC

March 26, 2012


Can you fall in love with an organisation? I think I’m smitten by the CDAC network. I can’t quite remember how I stumbled across them but I became aware of their work just days before they put on the Media and Tech Fair at Google’s London HQ last week. For those who couldn’t make it […]

Boycott Buy a Newspaper Day

January 27, 2009


Don’t buy a newspaper, support online advertising instead! 2 February has set aside as Buy A Newspaper Day in the US.

Journalism in global crisis

October 1, 2008


Following on from my post yesterday, the issue of a journalistic crisis appears to be as much of as an ongoing story as the financial crisis. In today’s Corriere della Sera, Marco Pratellesi, editor in chief of Corriere online, blogs about Italian journalists suffering from a cultural crisis and a rupture between generations. Apparently the same issues are […]
