Talk to a stranger today

Swing Dance on the street, Vancouver, BC, Canada

We’ve managed to successfully cannibalize real life human interactions by replacing them with social networks and gadgets. I am myself guilty of contributing to the development of mobile apps and social networks in my professional life. Yet technological advancements are nearly useless when they get to facilitating intimate human connections and we further contribute to the problem whenever we avoid an eye contact or interaction with a stranger.

Do humanity a favour and have a conversation with a stranger today.

Attending the Merging Media 2013 Conference

Merging Media 2013

This year after graduating Anahita from the Mozilla WebFWD program and being coached by people such as Dia Bondi I’ve become more interested in the concept of story telling as a means of communicating complex subjects with people. Last year I learned about the Transmedia Storytelling concept from my good friend Ericha Hargreave from Ahimsa Media. For someone who has been developing social networking and knowledge networking technologies for a few years now, I think I might be able to learn some inspiring ideas from the MergingMedia conference, so let’s see how it goes. If you are attending too, come and find me.
