GOOD 100: Meet Josh Kalven, Making Your News Digestible
Josh Kalven is the founder of Newsbound , a San-Francisco–based company that chews up and partially digests complicated news stories and, like a mother bird feeding her young, regurgitates them in a smooth, nutritious format. Kalven predicts the imminent death of articles as the primary news delivery system. Instead, he offers slide-based “stacks,” that offer entertaining, linear, narrative-based explanations for ongoing events of the day.
In 2013, Newsbound is working to introduce its unique style of explanation and storytelling into the digital media bloodstream, looking to work with publishers, think tanks, and nonprofits interested in creating explanatory content in stack form.
