What does the future of journalism in Australia look like? The disruption to journalism in the next twenty years will likely be greater than we’ve seen in the last twenty. The #FutureofJournalism series explores our options.

If we don’t know where we are heading, how can we create a pathway to get there? The Alliance for Journalists’ Freedom, in this fortnightly series, interviews leading thinkers on this from around the world.

Nabiha Syed is at the forefront of strengthening journalism by better harvesting information on the internet.

Forbes magazine called her “one of the best emerging free speech lawyers”. In 2016, she was named as a “40 Under 40 Rising Star” by the New York Law Journal. Before a stint on BuzzFeed, she was the First Amendment Fellow at The New York Times.

Nabiha is now president of a New York organisation called The Markup. The Markup describes itself as a new kind of media organization, staffed with quantitative journalists who pursue data-driven investigations.
