Well, it’s been a while since I posted, but hey, life sometimes comes before art. But I am going to get better. I promise. To make up for the lack of posts I’ll give a brief summary of my day today. I spent a full day at the Artisphere for Digital capital week hearing panels, keynotes and lots of other kinds of talks.
9am: Rising Stars Lightning Talk
This jaunty upbeat presentation featured many short keynote talks from a different kind of *star*. I heard about angel investing, ad targeting for blogs, an activity finder website for kids and more.
- Activity Rocket
An activity finder website for kids and more in the Montgomery county area (and expanding)
- Pipeline Fellowship
The pipeline fellowship trains women philanthropists to become angel investors through education, mentoring, and practice
A website that allows you to search awesome food blogs for the tastiest, most well-tested recipes
10am: Designing for Context
“We can no longer design online services for one device, location, etc.”
- Rad Campaign
Helping organizations that want to change the world
Online fundraising made easy
“Design is how something works”
“Design is technology + humans = how it affects our lives”
11am: Art in the digital age
An interesting discussion about art in today’s remix culture and how that affects IP laws, scarcity, appropriation, high art vs. low art, and the definition and purpose of art.
Digital designs for real, physical objects. A Universe of Things!

The rest of the day I went to many more interesting talks, including all about API’s, the 2012 election and social analytics and more. However, if you want to know details you’ll have to take me out for coffee, or go yourself next year.
And now I leave you with my doodles from today.
