danielgoldbergJournalist och författare. Fascinerad av små genidrag, stora idéer, nya tankar och den ständiga jakten på nästa stora grej.Jag har bevakat digitaliseringen av samhälle, kultur och näringsliv i ett drygt decennium. Först som reporter på tidningen Mobile i London, sen som nyhetschef på Computer Sweden och till sist som redaktionschef på internetworld.se. Däremellan frilansjobb för DN, SvD och Café samt reportage för bland andra The Guardian, Wired och Wall Street Journal. Jag har även skrivit fyra reportageböcker, om allt från hackarkultur till indiespel. Jag är mer intresserad av människor än av maskiner. För det är ju först med människans fantasi och kreativitet som allt det underbara med nätet och den digitala tekniken blir till verklighet.
