The Entire D6 Interview With Thomson Reuters CEO Tom Glocer (1 of 3)

We’re posting all the interviews from the sixth D: All Things Digital conference that took place in late May.

Unfortunately, due to issues too complicated to go into, we have to post all the D6 interviews in several 15-minute parts (I know, I know).

But–as many readers have requested–they will all be available in their entirety in this column.

Here’s Part 1 of 3 of an interview I did with Thomson Reuters CEO Tom Glocer.

(I will post one video part of the discussion with Glocer once a day this week, starting today and concluding Wednesday.)

Thomson Reuters was created by a merger in April that created one of the world’s biggest information companies, mostly aimed at businesses and professionals.

In this video, Glocer talks about his geeky background and about making a business selling news and information distribution in the digital age by having the deepest, most reliable and most comprehensive data–able to be consumed by both humans and machines.

While it’s tempting to see the Huffington Post’s Pulitzer as a “big win for new media,” or something like that, the real story is that these organizations — the Huffington Post, the New York Times, the Washington Post — are becoming more like each other. Old media and new media are increasingly antiquated terms.
