Panel etiquette and the future of journalism

Dr Mumbo thoroughly enjoyed last week’s panel debate on the future of journalism in Singapore, kindly hosted by the good folk at MyNewDesk.

Particularly the moment when Mashable Asia editor Victoria Ho was called out by panel chairman Mark Laudi for using her phone during proceedings.

Tut tut.

For the record, here it the moment just before that moment, as Alan Soon is waxing lyrical about Mashable, Microsoft comms chief Andy Pickup is peering thoughtfully into the future, NTU media lecturer Lau Joon-Nie is making notes like one of her dutiful students in the days when journalists used pen and paper, and Laudi is waiting for the appropriate time to slap Ho’s wrist.
