Andreas Ekstrom


Andreas Ekström is a writer and journalist. He focuses on the online world, media, and digital equality for the Swedish Daily newspaper Sydsvenskan, and in his blog and books.

Having written a number of fiction and non-fiction books, Andreas turned his journalistic curiosity towards the ever increasing influence of Google. Although not a programmer, designer or engineer (although, he says, he does look a bit like one), in The Google Code, Andreas took a look at the search giant and what it said about society and the world.

The Google Code looks at why we are so quick to refer to and believe Google. He asks should we be so trusting, what does our view of Google Results say about politics, business and love, and how should the world react to the answer? Andreas has made a study of Google; its beginnings, the corporate and organisational culture, its rise to dominance, and its constant evolution into new areas. He considers how the company has changed to meet new user demands, its gathering of data, and its business, design and technology strategies.

His journalistic study of one of the world’s most important companies, combined with his engaging, dynamic deliver has made Andreas one of Europe’s most sought-after futurists. As well as helping organisations to understand how Google operates he offers an insight of the tech world from a truly human perspective.
