Technology + Creativity = Magic: What can creatives learn from CES 2015?

It was clear that engineers, product designers and entrepreneurs were inspired at CES this year.

They have also given us some of the most ridiculous (are we really so lazy that we can’t adjust our own belts?) innovations.

The Passing of Great Public Relations Man Frank Mankiewicz

Frank Mankiewicz passed away last week at the age of 90. There is a generation of Americans who remember Frank as the press aide to Robert Kennedy who had the solemn duty of announcing RFK’s assassination to the world, but Frank was to be found at the center of some of the most interesting moments of the 20th Century—from early Hollywood, to World War II, to Kennedy’s Camelot, to the growth of National Public Radio.

You Should Make a Video Game

I had the privilege of spending last week working at San Diego Comic-Con with Microsoft. Its Games Studios wanted presenters to talk about the future of game design, and for some reason they wanted one of those people to be me. This was all in an effort to promote the upcoming game development software Project Spark, which opens up video game design to more than just computer scientists. It makes it so kids, adults, parents, teachers and students can all jump into complex game development in a very easy-to-use and easy-to-understand way.

With this in mind, he aptly themed his event Chrysalis, Radical Transformations.
