Intro

I am an award winning Swedish journalist, author and digital futurist who wrote a bestselling book about Google – and has since been a keynote speaker, consultant and commentator on all things digital around the world. I was recently named "Speaker of the Year" in Sweden.

But I will never stop writing. I am a reporter, heart and soul, and will always use journalistic methods and principles in my work, no matter what I am currently engaged in. I am a senior staff writer and columnist at Sydsvenskan, a daily morning paper in Malmö, Sweden – even though I seem to be spending rather little time in the newsroom these days.

My passion is to educate for digital equality. I want to see a world in which we share the wealth – not only financially, but also in terms of knowledge and influence. If you look for a motivation, a mission statement of mine, that’s it, right there.

My biggest international audience I found through TED. My TED talk, recorded in Oslo, Norway, has reached over 1,5 million viewers to date.
