Journalist, lecturer, and consultant Tom Johnson draws from a 35-year career in journalism that has taken him from the classroom to the newsroom and back. Johnson began using computers to tease meaning out of data while a Ph.D. candidate in the early 1970s, studying the impact of technology on urban spaces. By the early 1980s, he was writing about dedicated word processing systems and covering the early stages of personal computing in Silicon Valley for TIME and Popular Science. Johnson was a reporter for Time Magazine in El Salvador in the mid-1980s, the start-up editor of MacWeek, and a deputy editor of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. He is a Professor of Journalism (Emeritus) at San Francisco State University and the founder and co-director of the Institute for Analytic Journalism in Santa Fe. Tom will be speaking at 11:15 am and 1:30 pm on Saturday.
