I teach journalism at the University of Westminster in London, UK. The advent of the web, multi-chanel TV, digital radio, mobile phones and so much more is making this the most exciting period in journalism that I can remember. I wish I was starting out as a junior reporter again.
When not in London I live in a Suffolk village in a house looking out onto an ancient green. Behind the timber frames of the houses there are poeple selling on eBay, designing web sites…. The countryside, as much as the cities, is being transformed. Only on the desolate stretches of East anglian coastline can you imagine the world is not changing faster than ever before.
