A Brookings Institution fellow helps an underemployed young writer stay motivated on the frontiers of digital journalism. Luminary mentor Noah Shachtman discusses the future of war with Graham Jenkins in this exclusive video chat, captured by Fortnight Journal. A millennial combat scholar, Jenkins receives advice and encouragement from the editor of "Danger Room," WIRED magazine's technology and national security blog.
Shachtman chose to respond to two of Jenkin's original essays for Fortnight; "Future War" and "The End." His other pieces in Edition I of Fortnight include a snapshot of the recession generation ("The Stormy Present"), and epistolatory odes to a contrarian hero ("Letters to Hitchens").
UPDATE: As of August 2011, Graham is employed at the Institute for Defense Analyses (Washington, DC).
