ATC Video Now Online: Kevin Delaney

Our Art, Technology, and Culture Colloquium lecture, News of the Future and the Future of News, was held in conjunction with the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism and the Berkeley Arts and Design initiative.

Kevin Delaney is co-CEO and co-founder of Quartz, an award-winning global business news site, which has reshaped journalism of the digital era.

From the description:

Quartz seeks to reimagine how journalism looks in the digital age. In co-founding the platform, Delaney "hacked the very notion of what an online magazine can do" (Digiday) with a native mobile interface, concise stories, and a focus on design. Delaney spearheaded the use of infinite scrolling in news sites, fundamentally changing the experience of news consumption. In building a new format for journalism, Delaney and his colleagues at Quartz have refused to simply port content onto yet another interface, but have asked vital questions over the future structure of news and the shape of a product able to respond to these demands.
