Alex Clark – Crowdfunding for journalism

Alex Clark (@kiwialexnz) is passionate about digital technology, and enjoys exploring ways to embrace it's full potential. His academic background lies within the fields of media studies, ICT law and technology enterprise, while his professional background is in journalism.

Alex created PressPatron, which makes it easy to support media outlets online. In a few simple steps, supporters can make monthly and one-off contributions to their favourite online publishers – which Access Granted love and are part of.

We talk about many ways the media landscape is changing and how some media  outlets are dragging their heals (like many industries in a state of flux). 

After that we talk about wireless headphones and Poo Animoji’s – “I’ve never seen a poo so expressive before”.
