Author and speaker
Tim Dunlop is an author and speaker who began working life as founder of one of the first video stores in Melbourne, back when VHS was a cutting edge technology. He received a PhD in Communications and he has taught at the University of Canberra, Swinburne University, and the University of Melbourne. He has worked in London and Washington DC, and in the US he became interested in online technologies as agents of social change. He was an early political blogger and wrote the seminal text, The New Front Page, on changes wrought in journalism by digitisation. He has subsequently written two other books, Why The Future Is Workless and The Future of Everything, dealing with the future of work and other aspects of the tech revolution. He is committed to the idea of bottom-up democratic reform and his writing reflects that commitment.
