  1. Disrupting education

    My attraction to documenting what might be the greatest revolution in the history of mankind -- of which we are witnessing just the beginning right now -- manifests itself as a tingling sensation when I see archaic and even abusive systems topple in the face of the power of man-machine symbiosis. That is, the connection between technology and human innovation. Taking on the documentation of this unraveling is certainly overwhelming, as it reaches into every aspect of our lives -- in how we administer healthcare, explore love, catalyze political change, share media, create entertainment, and transform transportation.

  2. Filmmakers shouldn't fight the internet. They should embrace the change

    From Steven Spielberg to Steven Soderbergh, it seems like every day a new industry veteran drops a prediction about the coming implosion of the movie industry. While doom and gloom is a prevailing notion in Hollywood, the future is much brighter for independent filmmakers, who have a wave of digital tools at their disposal, plus the democratizing effect of the mighty Internet.

  3. Dave McClure is no male chauvinist

    In case you missed it, Dave McClure has been under fire for a comment he made at Big Omaha, a Nebraska-based innovation conference. The founder of 500 Startups was giving a lecture at the conference, when he asked a woman in the audience how the battery life was on her iPhone. “It’s fine,” she said, to which Dave replied, “You are a lying bitch.” Of course the woman who responded is not a bitch, but despite the rude comment Dave isn't a male chauvinist pig either.

  4. Amanda Palmer puts on a ninja gig

    In episode 2 of our CEA (Chief Executive Artist) series featuring musician & social-media maverick, Amanda Palmer, AFP shows how to put together a ninja gig. Harnessing her social media popularity, she pulls together an impromptu concert at a Masonic lodge in the midst of SXSW with her trademark riot girl verve. She addresses the criticism she received over crowd-sourcing (and not paying) musicians, and even interviews one of these musicians onstage, and proposes that the future of distribution can and should be direct. Most importantly, she asks us not to be afraid of "asking for help," urging us to say "yes," and become a part of the natural collaborative process. That is the whole reason we make art, she says.

  5. Amanda Palmer: social technology soothsayer

    Amanda Palmer, or as she calls herself, Amanda Fucking Palmer, is an alt rock icon who has made ingenious use of social technology to redefine the relationship between the artist and her fans. She's a rule breaker who got her start as a performance artist in the '90s by dressing up as an 8-foot bride statue in Harvard Square. Since then she has organized flash mobs resulting in pillow fights on urban streets and a wedding in New Orleans. Oh, and she sings. Sometimes she performs "ninja" gigs where she invites a few hundred fans over Twitter to catch a performance.
