Future of Media 2012 line-up

I thought it would be a good idea to make a list of all the great guests and lectures in my course DM2571 "Future of Media". We change the theme every year and this year's theme is "The Future of Magazines / Magazines of the Future".

I don't know why I haven't thought about doing this before. I actually think this is such a good idea that I just created and "retroactively" published (backdated) two new blog posts listing the 2011 and the 2010 line-up of guest lecturers:
- Future of Media 2011 line-up - The Future of Radio / Radio of the Future
- Future of Media 2010 line-up - The Future of Music / Music of the Future

Below is the 2012 line-up of our (no less than 19!) great guests lectures. A dozen different project groups will present their visions of the future in the form of a larger (200+ persons) public presentation (welcome!) between 13-16 on Friday December 7, 2012 (place to be announced later, documentation will later (Dec-Jan) be made available here).

- Magnus Gylje, (on Twitter) Editor of K magazine Svenska Dagbladet, ex-editor of SvD Insikt, "Visual journalism in digital age"

We unfortunately had two guests cancel their lectures, and there was also one more person I really would have wanted to come, but alas, in the end it turned out to be too difficult to get her to visit us. I can't even hope we'll have better luck next year since the course will have another theme next year...

During the previous month, I have written a number of texts on this blog that relates to the this year's Future of Media course:
- New term, new courses
- How should student project groups be put together?
- Children's (magazine) reading habits
- Student project groups - ambitions and grades
