Jeff Jarvis is an American journalist, associate professor, public speaker, and former television critic. He is the director of the Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism at the City University of New York and has been a vocal advocate for the Open Web and the importance of innovation in journalism.

Jarvis is the author of several books, including What Would Google Do? (2009), Public Parts: How Sharing in the Digital Age Improves Our Lives and Makes a Better World (2011), Geeks Bearing Gifts: The Promise of Openness in the Digital Age (2013), and The Future of the News: What We Need to Know to Survive the Next Ten Years (2016).

Jeff’s new book The Gutenberg Parenthesis traces the epoch of print from its fateful beginnings to our digital present – and draws out lessons for the age to come.

The age of print is a grand exception in history. For five centuries the age of prinit fostered what some call print culture – a worldview shaped by the completeness, permanence, and authority of the printed word. As a technology, print at its birth was as disruptive as the digital migration of today. Now, as the internet ushers us past print culture, journalist Jeff Jarvis offers important lessons from the era we leave behind.
