At CES this past week, I had the pleasure of talking to Group M's Chief Innovation Officer, Cary Tilds, on some of the tech trends she saw at CES, and where she thinks the future of technology heading.
Surely we're going to have to find a way to marry up these iron-clad content containers and allow consumers to roam free. It will probably be one of two things that spark it: Demand from consumers, or lack thereof.
The revelations that have come out about the National Security Agency's PRISM program are disturbing. The scale and scope of the collection of information about electronic communications and telephone calls that originate and pass through the United States is truly astounding.
I had the opportunity to sit with Performa 13 artist, Vishal Jugdeo, who created a new video installation where live and pre-recorded footage from French Guiana and Los Angeles, unfolded simultaneously within a constructed theatrical set and viewing environment.
I had the opportunity to talk to one of the "artists to watch" at Performa 13, Ryan McNamara. Ryan's MEƎM: A Story Ballet About the Internet is an immersive performance experience that explores Internet Culture.
Jennifer Wen Ma sat down with me to talk about her residency at Performa 13. "It's not a performance in the traditional sense of performance art. It is experiential art." Her residency, which spans eight days, lifts the curtain on what it takes to make an opera.
Is a picture still worth 1000 words? Jonathan Woods, Senior Editor of Photo and Interactive, at TIME, thinks so. At the Seattle Interactive Conference, I had the opportunity to pick Jonathan's brain on his unique perspective on photography's role in the art of storytelling.
A fun part of the Seattle Interactive Conference this year was the AT&T Wearables Hackathon. I had the opportunity to sit and chat with two of the hackathon's judges, venture capitalists Michelle Goldberg, Partner at Ignition, and Rebecca Kaden, Principal at Maveron.
Pablos Holman focuses on the world's bigger problems, inventing things that enrich the human experience. He is currently working on a bunch of awesome projects -- including a malaria-eradicating device that can shoot mosquitoes out of the sky with lasers.
One of the most exciting trends that I saw at the Seattle Interactive Conference this past week is that Design is back with a capital D. Reinforcing that is Keith Frankel, Head of Creative and Design at HubSpot, with whom I chatted about all things creative.
At the Seattle Interactive Conference, I sat down with Callie Schweitzer, Director of Digital Innovation at TIME, and Jeff Lanctot, CEO of Mixpo, and former Global CMO of Razorfish. Both Callie and Jeff have experience in brand building.
I had the pleasure of sitting with Megan Tweed, VP of Media at Razorfish. Watch as we also talk about her Collective, the importance of connecting, and how she applied the ethos of punk music to her adult life.
