Frédéric Filloux is currently International Fellow at the John S. Knight Fellowships at Stanford University.  He is also the editor of the Monday Note, a newsletter / blog that covers digital business models and technology since 2007. His co-author is Jean-Louis Gassée, a tech investor based in Palo Alto. The Monday Note is now hosted by Medium and republished by Quartz. It reaches about 30,000 media professionals each week.

During his time at Stanford, Frederic initiated the News Quality Scoring Project which is aimed at surfacing quality journalism from the web, in real time, at scale and automatically. By whitelisting numerous news sources and authors, NQS will also address the fake news problem. Prior to that, Frederic spent four years as head of digital for Groupe Les Echos, France's main business news provider. From 2007 until 2010, Frédéric Filloux was a working as an editor for the international division of the Norwegian media group Schibsted ASA. In 2002, he was part of the managing team that launched the free daily 20 Minutes, which became the most read newspaper in France. Before, he spent 12 years at Liberation, one of the most innovative French media at the time, successively as a business reporter, New York correspondent, editor of the multimedia section, manager of online operations, and finally, editor of the paper.

Frederic is a board member of the Global Editors Network and Reporters sans Frontières (Reporters without Borders). He also has an experience in the advertising business after a one-year stop at the Paris Groupe BDDP agency (now TBWA). He is a graduate from the Bordeaux school of Journalism.
