Roundtable discussion “The Future of Innovation Journalism”

I just participated in the roundtable discussion “The Future of Innovation Journalism” at Stanford. We discussed the future of innovation journalism – the shapes it may take, the business models it may have, the readerships with which it may interact, and how it could work as an "engine for enabling society to understand and manage the changes brought on by innovation". The debate also included the interaction between technological advancements and new media development. Very interesting and surprisingly creative discussion, probably due to that there were both journalists and techie gurus, as well as innovation analysts around the table. The discussion was videotaped by Stanford University Television (STV) and will be published in some weeks time.
