A mildly sociopathic Dutch adolescent lauches news on Twitter beating CNN to the mark, Wikileaks tips the world into a tizz, a new software writes in a flash baseball reports in impecable English ……. The bookThe monkey that won a Pulitzer (March 2011) looks at the journalism of tomorrow through the stories of its new champions, everyday heroes (or delinquents, depending on point of view) who are changing our way of viewing the world. The key concepts are precision, speed, participation, transparency, freedom and beauty.
