A short history of long-form

Attention spans are getting shorter and shorter, right? Not quite. Thanks to reading on mobiles, new web tools and social sharing, the appetite for immersive, in depth long-form journalism has rarely been greater than it is now. This session will look at the rise of long-form, and offer some thoughts about where it's headed.

Giles Wilson is creative director of Harpoon Productions, a digital content production house. He was the founding editor of the BBC News Magazine where he introduced long-form journalism.
