Some of the subject matter is regurgitating the usual busy talk of how technology is revolutionizing our lives. It’s all been said before in blogs and editorials.

Murdoch did not rise from 22-year-old publisher of a local daily in Australia into the master of multi-media without keen insight and savvy business sense. He might be in his 70s, but he gets the new world order of news better than most of the 30-40 year olds. This is a must listen for anyone involved in the media.
