September 25: Luncheon Series with Michael Maier on “Participation, Design, Search: How the Internet is Transforming”


Berkman Center Luncheon Series

Tuesday, September 25, 12:30 pm
Berkman Center Conference Room
23 Everett Street, Second Floor, Cambridge, MA

Guest: Michael Maier
Topic:  Participation, Design, Search: How the Internet is Transforming

Network publishing has become a popular way to inspire journalism on the Internet. Digital Magazines are starting to pick up – by bringing editorial structure and integrated publishing. Search will not remain Google’s monopoly. The Internet is transforming from an experimental space to a quite mature and professional platform. The next generation (which is today’s) of innovation will introduce more sustainable models and hence change the old media much more than the shockwaves of Web 1.0.

Michael Maier, founder and CEO of the German company Blogform Publishing, was previously the Shorenstein Center’s Sagan Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. Michael, an Austrian born journalist, has worked as editor for Die Presse, a Vienna daily, for Berliner Zeitung, Stern magazine and Netzeitung, Germany’s first newspaper exclusively published on the internet. Maier also worked as a columnist for the Austrian daily, Der Standard, and is a regular lecturer at the journalism schools in Graz and Vienna. He graduated from Graz University with a degree in law and music. Maier’s research at the Shorenstein Center examined the changes in the media industry and in politics due to blogs, user-generated content, social media and Internet newspapers.
