ANDREY MIROSHNICHENKO ? I am a media futurologist and journalist with 20+
years in the print media. I had been working as an editor in the press for
more than twenty years, then wrote the book ?When newspapers die? and left

columnist on media for various outlets.
I am a coordinator for the Russian

Washington, DC, 2012-13). Currently I am a PhD student in communication and
culture at York University, Toronto with the focus on media ecology,
impacts of new media, and fake news. My previous dissertation, in
journalism and linguistics, focused on semantic and linguistic structures
of propaganda (1996). My books explore a range of ideas related to media in
the areas of linguistics, politics, PR, corporate communication,
journalism, transhumanism, and singularity. My blog at
