Chair, 2013 Annual Giving Campaign for Salzburg Global Seminar
Kenneth Cukier first learned about Salzburg Global Seminar as a student of international relations in the United States. He was fascinated by its storied history as a place where intellectuals came together to bridge the divides of Europe amid the embers of World War II –and later, to bridge Cold War divides.
Two decades later, as a journalist at The Economist, Kenneth was invited to Salzburg as a faculty member for session 439 “The New Information Networks” by the session chair, Victor Mayer-Schönberger, a professor at Oxford who later became the co-author of Kenneth’s New York Times best-selling book, Big Data. A Revolution that Will Change How We Live, Work and Think.
