In 10 years, new technologies, same fundamentals

It’s the dreaded job interview question: Where do you see yourself in five years?

In the past, I’ve had pretty good answers. I wanted to be a reporter, an editor, a newsroom leader.

In the Syracuse Emerging Media Platforms class, now we’re being asked to imagine our future careers in the context of emerging technologies.

With so many changes happening so quickly in terms of technology, I’d be silly to suggest exactly what will play out for sure in the next 10 years. I started out as a print reporter until this thing called the internet became big, then social media and mobile reporting. Among the things we’re still getting a handle on are artificial intelligence, holograms and virtual reality, all of which are in their nascent stages. They will become easier to handle technologically, and they will be a lot cheaper for more people to use.

I want to delve into all those technologies as a emerging platforms newsroom leader and continually push new forms of ethical storytelling.
