News Impact Summit in Hamburg

News Impact Summit in Hamburg

I visited the inspring News Impact Summit in Hamburg yesterday, a media innovation event which is organised by the European Journalism Centre (EJC) in cooperation with the News Lab at Google. On the occasion of the book release of the “Verification Handbook for Investigative Reporting”, it focused on the theme “Verification, Investigation and Digital Ethics“ – mixing keynote speeches, ignite talks, panel discussions and training sessions with international experts. It will be followed by events in Paris (April 28), Madrid, London, Amsterdam, Warsaw and Prague later in the year which also will be free of charge (link to press release).

I collected the most interesting tweets (hashtag: #NISHBR) and most helpful links:

leave a comment »

My feelings towards Christmas are similar to The Grinch‘s (without the greedy aspect). The only thing I like about it are the holiday songs. Therefore I put together a Spotify playlist with great Christmas albums and compilations. Feel free to add yours – the list is shared.

Crowdfunkin': Best of Current Funk (Spotify Playlist)

leave a comment »

“Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson (feat. Bruno Mars) is one of the best current funk releases I have heard in a long time:

After mentioning this on Facebook, my funky friends recommended many other great acts to me. I threw in some additional favorites of mine and started a Spotify playlist. Put it into shuffle mode … and enjoy!

Just announced: Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan will be the guest of honour at this year’s River to River. Florence Indian Film Festival in beautiful Florence/Italy – always my favourite festival of the year.

The festival will hold a special tribute to Khan who next appears in Colin Trevorrow’s “Jurassic World”. There will be screenings of his films “Qissa”, “The Namesake” and “Paan Singh Tomar”, plus seven episodes of the third season of the HBO series “In Treatment”.

According to Wikipedia, Irrfan Khan has appeared in more than 30 Bollywood films (as of 2013). Khan’s English-language mainstream work includes character roles in movies like “New York”, “I Love You”, “A Mighty Heart”, “Slumdog Millionaire”, “The Amazing Spider-Man”, and “Life of Pi”.

Augie’s gone. Where do the bop go?

leave a comment »

With great sadness, I just became aware of the fact that singer, songwriter, performer and producer Augie Johnson has passed away on October 10, 2014.

I interviewed him in Los Angeles in 1982 after the album “Make Mine Bop” by Side Effects‘ side project L.A. Boppers blew me away. It featured one of my favorite jazz-funk-soul songs of all time: “Where Do the Bop Go”.
