These include (but certainly aren't limited to) digital media, NYC, history, southern culture and food, international affairs, sports, traveling to faraway lands, books, and women's rights.

Why do you think more men than women read news on a tablet? 

In my Lean Back 2.0 gig, I see a lot of hyped-up iPad apps full of pointless features that distract, not enhance. This app, however, looks absolutely amazing. Want. It. Now.

Short video that gives you a peak into The Economist’s iPad app. Includes a very catchy tune now stuck in my head. 

From The Economist’s Lean Back 2.0 blog:  ”DJ Spooky’s creative success should assuage fears that new technologies like the iPad might completely subsume traditional forms of culture. It’s obvious that Mozart’s music isn’t going away anytime soon. Instead, the iPad is allowing musicians to create new pieces and formats out of Mozart, reaching a new audience in the process. The iPad is really a perfect tool to help us do what we’ve been doing for centuries – sampling old music, books and magazines and reshaping them into something new.”

…why I haven’t been posting on this Tumblr as frequently as usual. I recently started a short-term job at The Economist helping (among other things) to launch Lean Back 2.0, their new blog on the future of media and digital reading. I’m still at the UN until the end of the week, but I’ve been moonlighting at The Economist writing blog posts on the future of presentations in the digital age, the recent Pew “The State of the Media” report , and the key to digital news revenue streams. Please read, share, comment, and Tweet! And, if you’re curious about the origin of the term “Lean Back 2.0”, you can learn more here
