Jakob Steinschaden

I`m a technology journalist based in Vienna, working for the daily newspaper KURIER and its technology news portal Futurezone.at. I´ve published the book "Phänomen Facebook" in Oktober 2010, and I´m also running my blog www.phaenomenfacebook.com.

I mainly focuss on writing about social media, web start-ups and apps, and I´m heavily interested in new topics connected to new movements like Arab Spring, Occupy, Anonymous, hacker culture and their influence on society.

When I´m not typing into my MacBook, not visiting a conference and not interviewing interesting people, I try to improve my cooking skills, read tons of books, travel, play soccer, listen to underground music, and photograph a little bit. btw: This is not a Pentax ad, it´s just my camera.
