About this speaker

When a volcano erupted in Iceland and canceled flights around the world, Losowsky turned the experience of being stranded into a magazine. The day he got lost in Florence, Italy, he converted his confusion into a book. When a friend fell sick without insurance, he made a newsprint publication that has so far raised more than $14,000 for his friend's care. When Losowsky's neighborhood was without power in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in New York, he conceived an information first aid kit for communities to create their own news outlets, which he is currently developing at Stanford University.
