About this blog

StevemI am a journalist with a healthy interest in politics and business, and a fascination with social media, public communication and the future of journalism.

As managing editor at BDFM (part of South Africa’s Times Media Group), I help coordinate the efforts of a pretty complex, multi-platform operation serving several websites, a realtime news service, a daily newspaper and a weekly magazine.

New ways of telling stories. Managing change in ever smaller, smarter newsrooms. Different ways of making a buck in an increasingly challenged industry.

This blog is an outlet for some of my personal discoveries about these things. It is also a starting point for some inquiries and a platform for rather a lot of opinion which, I should emphasize, is entirely my own.

Thanks for dropping in.
