At SXSW this year I was happy to have a panel on the Future of Snackable Content.
Right now on BuzzFeed, I can watch Voldemort give a really awkward hug, find out the 25 things kids today will never have, see a tortoise amputee with a wheel for a leg, and discover the proper way to throw a pie. BuzzFeed does a spectacular job at fulfilling its mission to, “Track the web’s obsessions in real time.”
The Nonick 2011 Conference focusing on tech and mobile was held last weekend in Bilbao, Spain. It’s an emerging conference promoting the role of technology and new media in developing new areas of Spain’s economy. Nonick is hosted by EiTB, which is like the Basque version of NPR, providing multiple television and radio channels in the Basque and Spanish languages. Officially, as an international conference, Nonick is all in English, but with a very high percentage of attendees from Spain it’s also a good chance to practice your Spanish. I lived in Madrid about 9 years ago, and was excited to be able to carry messages of design for social media back across the Atlantic to share with a Spanish audience.
