Event Details

For years, people have argued that long, complex journalism is going away. Our attention spans are shrinking and the web makes everything shorter. But it turns out that, in the past three years, the opposite has happened. Long-form writing of a certain kind is actually thriving and expanding.

In this talk, Nicholas Thompson, editor of, author & co-founder of The Atavist, explores the technological trends that are pushing this transformation: from the changes in the devices that we use, to the rise of social media and the reorganization of the Web.
