“There are some people who don’t wait.” WNYC Radiolab’s Robert Krulwich on the future of journalism
The link has the full text of his commencement speech to the Berkeley School of Journalism’s 2011 class. It’s a tale of death-defying motorcycle rides, saints and heroes, not trusting big companies, how science blogs are some of the best examples of new journalism, and on not waiting your turn.
It’s probably the best thing that’s ever been written about the fact that in our age, you can just go for it.
It might also be one of the reasons I have this Tumblr. Of course, I love Radiolab, so I’m pretty biased :)
