News of the World No Longer - Tony Kennick - TEDxSheffield

Most of us know Tony Kennick as a mild mannered web technologist at the consultancy Technophobia. Earlier this summer, however, he (@thegreatgonzo) and a group of people led an online effort to pressure advertisers in the News of the World to quit the paper in response to the phone hacking scandal as documented by the BBC's Rory Cellan-Jones. Their effort was part of a tidal wave of disgust that forced News International to take the shocking step of closing down Britain's top selling Sunday newspaper.TEDxSheffield is operated under a license from TED Conferences LLC held by @herbkim. In 2011, it was co-curated by @chrisdymond, held at the Showroom Cinema and supported by Creative Sheffield. The talk was recorded & edited by TDC, Sheffield.For information about future @TEDxSheffield events follow us on Twitter or signup at.. ..thanks for the interest!In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
