The Washington Post's Chief Digital Officer

Technology is always changing the way people learn about news events. So how to push the envelope, and stay ahead of what people want from print media? Tech Tuesday meets the person charged with driving the digital engine of innovation.

As a computer programmer, Vijay Ravindran sharpened his skills developing software for one of the world's biggest Internet businesses: Amazon. Now he's the guy crafting a digital strategy for The Washington Post, which, like many news organizations, is scrambling to keep up in today's demanding online era of news. Ravindran joins Kojo to explore life along the digital frontier -- where journalistic goals, business realities and programming philosophies determine how technology will interact with news consumption. We get the latest on social readers, mobile apps, or other yet unannounced experimental ventures.
