I’m thrilled to announce I will be delivering the opening keynote at DATA2014; a summit that epitomizes the work I do celebrating creativity and innovation!
Design, Art + Technology Awards
Interactive Exhibition and Creative Technologies Summit
May 7-8, 2014 ~ Pittsburgh, PA
DATA 2014 is a national celebration of creative technologies in Pittsburgh, PA.
Founded at the intersection of Design, Art and Technology, this two-day event is an opportunity to engage with folks from all around the country on the newest trends in creativity and innovation. DATA is an event like no other — a mash-up of networking, interactivity and new ideas — showcasing the year’s most innovative art and technology projects, experiments and achievements.
The DATA conference brings together artists, entrepreneurs, geeks, investors, makers, innovation leaders, students and regular ole folk to be inspired by each other, discover new opportunities, and find out what’s next. Topics span the creative tech gamut, including design, gaming, film & television, robotics, mobile applications, education, edutainment, new media advertising, industrial design, architecture, animation, social networks, music, fine art, and much more. This day-long think tank is packed full of workshops, panels and talks on the newest and most exciting innovations and ideas!
This is going to be an incredible event! I recently discovered Penelope Trunk of Brazen Careerist will be speaking, too. I’ve known of her work for a long time, and am looking forward to seeing her keynote.
If you’ll be at DATA2014, please find me – or send me a tweet @WilloLovesYou – and say hello!
UPDATE: A short documentary video, and a few photos!
My talk was focused on how we are rapidly evolving individuals, we must develop compassion & courage to birth our big ideas into the world!
Also! Audrey Russo, the President and CEO of the Pittsburgh Technology Council, and I were also on an episode of Our Region’s Business while I was there:
Pittsburgh is awesome!
