Asaf Ronel is the World News Editor at Haaretz.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT LED YOU TO START WORKING IN DIGITAL\/MEDIA PUBLISHING?\r\n\r\nCoincidence. I was looking for a job after I was tired of being a waiter and heard Haaretz is looking for a translator from Spanish & English. I learned Spanish in the university, I thought I should try. I was hired, and 11 and a half years later I'm still in Haaretz for a different position.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY LOOK LIKE FOR YOU?\r\n\r\nI'm connected almost constantly in my waking hours. I spend few hours a day in the office, but I'm following current events on my phone the whole day.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT DOES YOUR WORK SETUP LOOK LIKE? (YOUR APPS, PRODUCTIVITY TOOLS, ETC.)\r\n\r\nMy main source of news is notifications from the news wires I get to my mailbox. I follow breaking news mainly on Twitter.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT DO YOU DO TO GET INSPIRED?\r\n\r\nBrowse on Twitter looking for interesting things interesting people say. Read op-eds.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT\u2019S YOUR FAVORITE PIECE OF WRITING OR QUOTE?\r\n\r\nSic transit gloria mundi, which means\u00a0"Thus passes the glory of the world." --- it helps keep things in perspective.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT IS THE MOST INTERESTING\/INNOVATIVE THING YOU HAVE SEEN ON ANOTHER OUTLET OTHER THAN YOUR OWN?\r\n\r\nI can't think of anything at the moment.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT IS THE PROBLEM THAT YOU'RE PASSIONATELY TACKLING AT THE MOMENT?\r\n\r\nNot directly related to my job --- life as a person with a conscience in the Israeli repressive regime.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nDO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR AMBITIOUS DIGITAL PUBLISHING AND MEDIA PROFESSIONALS WHO ARE JUST STARTING OUT?\r\n\r\nLike it or not, our age is the age of provocation.
