The Future of Journalism by Robert Krulwich

Having spent much of my life in the publishing and media fields, albeit on the sales and marketing side, I have a passion for the media and publishing businesses in all their formats.  So when I saw this blog entry I was intrigued.

Robert Krulwich gave this talk as the commencement speech at the Berkeley Journalism School, Class of 2011.  It is not only inspirational for those thinking of pursuing a career in journalism, but frankly, it could be applied to virtually any type of business today that has any relation to the digital world.  Everything is uncertain right now and even those very well established businesses are at risk of being superseded by some new innovative entrepreneur who leverages or applies technology and smarts in a whole new way.

Read the whole thing.  I don’t care who you are.  We can all use a little inspiration.


About John Murphy

I'm a husband of 29 years to my beautiful wife and college sweetheart, Janet. We have 6 children from age 11 to 26. Having spent many years in corporate life I wanted to leave that structure and be more entrepreneurial. I'm also a licensed real estate broker, REALTOR® and investor specializing in the Minneapolis western suburbs (LIC # 40059306) with eXp Realty. I love to exercise - specifically cycling and weight lifting! If you can't find me, I'm probably exercising at Life Time Fitness in Plymouth. I'm always engrossed in a good book or two. I enjoy my coffee in the morning and an occasional glass of wine at night.
