I’m lucky to be on the committee for Creative Mornings Vancouver, which is a breakfast lecture series that encourages dialogue and debate in the creative community. The format is simple – a 20 minute talk followed by a Q & A period – but different in its mandate to get away from indulgent portfolio presentations and needy networking events. This photo is of Stewart Butterfield, co-founder of the popular photo-sharing website Flickr, who gave a great talk on how the internet has changed everything and that we already take it for granted. He maintains that the internet is a powerful development as important as the development of agriculture or a biological leap forward for humanity and we have not really begun to understand its impact. He also took some time to talk about his newest project Glitch, a massive multi-player fantasy game.
