Chris Anderson on the future of journalism

July 2, 2009

Chris Anderson, the editor of Wired, is in London promoting his new book ‘Free’ and spoke at the Institute of Contemporary Arts.

He told the audience that, amongst other things, the terms ‘news’, ‘journalist’ and ‘journalism’ were being rendered meaningless by the democratisation of content via low-cost production tools on the Web.

The substance of Chris’s remarks has been covered well elsewhere but, alarmed by his comments about news, I caught up with him after the event to ask him what hope there was for journalists.
