The data revolution: How WikiLeaks is changing journalism

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

A panel discussion at the Frontline Club on how online data and its dissemination is changing journalism and the relationship between public and power.

The panel comprised Julian Assange, WikiLeaks editor-in-chief (via online link up); journalist, academic and freedom of expression activist Heather Brooke, whose successful campaigning led to the full release of MPs’ expenses files; media lawyer Mark Stephens of Finers, Stephens Innocent and Simon Rogers, editor of The Guardian’s Datablog.

Chaired by Paddy O’Connell, the presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Broadcasting House.


Speaking at the Frontline Club Monday June 8th

Thursday, June 4th, 2009

I’ll be speaking about the MPs’ expenses story on Monday at the Frontline Club in London Monday June 8th at 7.30pm. Joining me will be Roger Alton, editor of The Independent, Andrew Pierce, assistant editor of the Daily Telegraph and media commentator Roy Greenslade who will be chairing the event.

I imagine we’ll be talking about how the story came about, chequebook journalism, old-fashioned campaigning journalism – that sort of thing. Tickets are £10. I hope some of you can come along. It should be a quite heated debate.
