Things have been pretty quiet around here. As summer came to an end and fall took over, there are many changes in the air.
If you asked me last week "what is one of the most boring tasks you can think of" inquiring about an insurance rate would have been one of them. I read about the startup Lemonade a few months ago and came across their site today.
Spring is my absolute favorite season. It always feels like change is in the air and who doesn't love that extra hour of daylight? It also happens to coincide with the annual South by Southwest Interactive festival in Austin, TX. There's so much that happens during those 5 days that it usually takes me a day or three to distill the good information. There are so many topics to cover but today I will just focus on one - IBM.
Chris Milk uses innovative technologies to make personal, interactive, human stories. Accompanied by Joshua Roman on cello and McKenzie Stubbert on piano, Milk traces his relationship to music and art — from the first moment he remembers putting on headphones to his current work creating breakthrough virtual reality projects. VR is the last medium for storytelling, he says, because it closes the gap between audience and storyteller. To illustrate, he brought the TED audience together in the world's largest collective VR experience. Join them and take part in this interactive talk by getting a Google Cardboard and downloading the experience at with.in/TED.
