Currently one of the most influential specialists in the technological industry, David Kirkpatrick’s journalistic career began in 1990 when his essay Will You Be Able to Retire was a finalists for the US National Journalism Prize.

In 1991, he joined the team at Fortune writing on technological, IT subjects and editing staying in the company for 20 years. Since then, his numerous editorial works about companies such as Apple, IBM, Microsoft, Intel and Sun have been regarded as material of reference in his field. He now leads and host Techonomy, a forum that fosters the central connection between technology and progress both in business and in society, as founder and host.

Kirkpatrick frequently collaborates with several TV programs in network channels CNN and CBS as an expert in the technology industry. He has created and developed Brainstorm, an annual, multidisciplinary convention that brings together world leaders with the aim of identifying the trends that will shape the future with the Aspen Institute. He is very much in-demand as a speaker and moderator, participating frequently in international forums such as the IT International Congress and the World Economic Forum, better known as the Davos Forum.

His book The Facebook Effect uncovers how in little more than half a decade, Facebook has gone from a dorm-room novelty to a company with over 900 million users. It is one of the fastest growing companies in history, an essential part of the social life not only of teenagers but hundreds of millions of adults worldwide. As Facebook spreads around the globe, it creates surprising effects—even becoming instrumental in political protests from Colombia to Iran.
