For my latest research on media, insights from the "Business Models for Investigative Journalism" project that I initiated in the Global Investigative Journalism Network, and award-winning investigative features on subjects ranging from true crime to the arts -- including examples used in "Story-Based Inquiry" that you may freely use as advance readings in journalism courses -- just scroll down the page. You'll find excerpts from my books in the "bibliothèque". Thanks for stopping by!
"I am impressed
by Story-Based Inquiry. I was prepared to
see it as one more book on investigative
reporting by someone whose time might be
better spent doing it. Instead I found it
insightful and logical. Plus it's
available online for free instead of just in
overpriced textbook fashion, meaning my
students might actually read it. I've
already used some material on making and
testing hypotheses in my Investigative
Reporting class and will soon be using
sections on writing in a news writing class.
I learned a few things and even things I
already knew are well explained and
absolutely recommend the use of 'Story-Based
Inquiry' in class. I tested it this autumn
at the Artevelde University College and I
clearly could see
"You are a reference
for our network."

the trail for the current generation of
expat writers in Paris."

Journalism Work: The INSEAD Social
Innovation Centre Report on Business Models
for Investigative Media
Why Investigative Journalism is Coming Back: UNESCO asked me to write about Freedom of Expression and investigative reporting for World Press Freedom Day 2010. The paradox is that while the news industry declines, demand for deep news is going up. The question is, how will journalists profit from those trends? Click here.
Power of User Forums: My colleague
David Soberman and I wondered if user reviews
of durable consumer goods could impact their
prices on eBay. The short answer is
yes. In this INSEAD Working Paper
(forthcoming in Corporate Reputation Review)
we call this effect "The Equalizer", because
it enables small companies that make
high-quality goods to compete with much
bigger, richer firms. We include an
analysis of how folks on forums achieve this
effect, and what firms can do to benefit from
here for the paper.
Why the crisis of business is only
beginning: What does the
financial crisis have in common with
Watergate? A long tail that will change the

The Quantitative Revolution and the Crisis: "Quants" -- the people who make quantitative models of how financial markets and products perform -- have been under close scrutiny for their role in the crisis of 2008. In a conference at Columbia University in December 2009, leading academics and market practitioners got together to analyse the promise and danger of those models. By reading between their lines, my conference report found some hidden risks; click here.
