The Technology of War Reporting... with Tales from the Bunker

Robert Wiener
Journalist, Executive Producer, Author
Special Guest Speaker of
Richard Chapman, Senior Lecturer in Screenwriting

Moderated by: Cynthia Wichelman, M.D.

Robert Wiener, world-renowned reporter and senior executive producer at CNN for 20 years, will discuss technological advances in war reporting, whether technology has actually aided the public's understanding of the news, and how technology has increased the risk of reporting from the field. We hope Mr. Wiener will also share anecdotes from his forthcoming book, My Life With Big Men, which highlights his close encounters with numerous dictators, leaders of the free world, and other historical figures.

Science On Tap is a place where, for the price of a beverage, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings take place outside a traditional academic context, in the Crown Room at Schlafly Bottleworks.

Meetings are held on the last Wednesday of the month during the academic year, usually from 7:00 - 8:30 PM. The standard format is as follows: 20 minutes of presentation, followed by a 7 minute break for attendees to introduce themselves to each other at the table, and then an hour of discussion. Seating is limited to the first 100 people.  No reservations accepted.
