“FREITAG am Donnerstag”: David Rowan

David Rowan, Editor of Wired UK was the second speaker in the “FREITAG am Donnerstag” series that I curated for FREITAG.

We invited David to speak about his insights on the topic of Journalism. David spoke about how social media can save journalists’ lives. The talk was focusing on a rather dark side of the world of journalism and David was very well aware that the audience wasn’t necessarily expecting that, knowing that he is the editor of Wired UK. It is important that people like him, with such an audience and power, point out the dark and dangerous side of the life of a journalist.

Watch his touching talk below and read the entire transcript here.

A big thank you to Maria Popova of Brainpickings for making the introduction to David Rowan and therefore making this talk possible.
