Radiointerview zu meinem Buch Kurzbefehl

December 8, 2010

Kevin Rechsteiner von Radio Stadtfilter aus Winterthur hat mich gestern in seiner Sendung Digital zu meinem Buch Kurzbefehl – Der Kompass für das digitale Leben befragt.

Das rund 20-minütige Gespräch gibt Einblick, wie das Buch entstanden ist, wie ich mich selber durchs digitale Leben schlage und warum ausgerechnet Adrian Sieber von den Lovebugs das bisher beste Feedback zum Buch gegeben hat.

These are great times for journalism. This is how I work:


I grew up as a journalist of words. It remains one of my favourite means to tell stories. Chosen wisely, put in the correct order and structured well, words are as powerful as ever.


When we build applications, when we report and present stories in novel ways, code is what drives them. Speak the language of computers, make them work for you.

How I Learnt to Code


Call it data journalism, if you will. Numbers and data in general are a wonderful raw material to work with. I dig for stories and tell them in visually compelling ways.


My work has appeared in Neue Zürcher Zeitung, The Guardian, Quartz, Spiegel Online, Das Magazin, Tages-Anzeiger, SonntagsZeitung, TagesWoche, among others.
