Dan Gillmor is a leading authority on the phenomenon of media literacy and citizen journalism. As founding director of the Knight Center for Digital Media Entrepreneurship at Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, he is a leader in the effort to help create a culture of innovation and risk-taking in journalism education, and in the wider media world. Dan also serves as the school's Kauffman Professor of digital media entrepreneurship.

One of the preeminent thinkers on the topic of new media, Dan brings deep knowledge of the collision of media and technology and its impact. His most recent book, "Mediactive," explores 21st century media and the new rules for engagement in today's connected world. He is also the author of "We the Media: Grassroots Journalism by the People, for the People," a book that explains the rise of citizens' media and why it matters. Dan is also a regular contributor to the Guardian.

Speaking Topics
  • Future of Media and Journalism

    Over the years, as a journalist, media entrepreneur, author, and journalism professor, Dan Gillmor has been deeply involved in the evolution of media from its 20th century manufacturing model to a 21st century networked ecosystem. The changes have affected journalists, their sources—especially in government and business—and their audiences, and Gillmor addresses the impact of these profound changes. Information velocity is increasing, and there are consequences to being wrong. A doubled-edged sword, the decentralization of information empowers individuals but also creates an environment where sources like Twitter are relying more on “after-the-fact” checking. Media and journalists must rely on a set of principles– skepticism, judgment, research, free thinking, thoroughness, accuracy, transparency, independence, and fairness – if they want to remain a trusted source of news. However, many of these principles require a more slow-form version of news. How can these ideals be reconciled? Gillmor also looks at the future of the internet. The promise of the internet was the decentralization of information, but Hollywood, government, and big business want to tightly control access. What is the best path for the future, and what are the ramifications of our digital decisions?

  • Media Literacy and Civic Engagement in a Digital Age

    Dan Gillmor discusses media literacy and civic engagement in a digital age. Nowadays, the information and ‘news’ are created at an increasingly rapid pace. Social media like Twitter and Facebook contribute to the spread of information but oftentimes the first wave that information is inaccurate. Consumers of news must learn to be skeptical of absolutely everything they read and hear – but not to the same degree. Skepticism, judgment, research, and free thinking are just some of the principles we must actively engage, and a credibility scale must be put in place, measuring all of the information we get each day against evidence. We can no longer be passive consumers of media. We need to become active users—as consumers and creators—participating in the conversations that inform communities and societies. In the process, we have to decide what to trust.
