Miroshnichenko editedHi, my name is 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 the sport. Since 2010, I have worked as a media theorist, consultant and columnist on media for various outlets. I am a coordinator for the Russian Association of Futurologists, a Fulbright-Kennan scholar (Wilson Center in 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.

This blog is about old and new media. The new digital environment and the future of humankind are also covered, since any attentive exploration of media, being done fairly enough and far enough, inevitably leads to the concepts of Singularity and Posthumanity.

Here is one of my recent books on Amazon, with some kind words from Douglas Rushkoff and Robert Logan:
Human as media. The emancipation of authorship


Here is a brief description of my book When newspapers die  (which was published in Russian)
