Berkeley Breathed

Famed Cartoonist of Opus. I just quit my cartooning career after 30 years. In the EG spirit of open intimacy I’m going to review how I got to this place of shame. It was 1973, senior assignment. The only art class I mostly stayed awake in. [image] Worthless in many artistic regards. I have no […]

Todd Rundgren

My latest CD is Areana, if you like raging guitars and a guy screaming like he has his nuts caught in a belgian waffle maker you may like it. What is your most memorable moment? What are you most proud of? That just tells you they never listened to the CD. You predicted everything that […]

David Pogue

We’ve got the video now! Here’s our original post: I’ve been reading his work for years so I’m thrilled to be listening to David Pogue, technology columnist and blogger for the New York Times.

I learned about the idea of algorithmic art. Started computing my own Mandelbrot sets. Then and even today I […]

Ian Dunbar, dog whisperer

How can you compete with a puppy? First I want to say I’m sitting in the audience I had a tear in my eye. Last year I left EG very inspired. I changed my business, went home, digitized everything. Save a tree, download the book, download the DVD. Launched Jan 26, doggy newspaper, doggy magazine, […]

Nicholas Negroponte: One Laptop per Child

I presented last year at EG. So this is an update: What’s happened, where has it gone? What are the kids learning and what are the teachers telling us from around the world? Netbooks, a new layer of affordable laptops in the $350 price point, by sometime in the next year will represent 50% of […]

Dan Ariely: Predictably Irrational

Dan Ariely is a Professor of Behaviorial Economics at Duke University and author of Predictably Irrational. Good morning. I’ll tell you a little bit about irrational behavior – not yours, other peoples’. Writing academic papers are not that exciting. Often not fun to read, and often worse to write. So I tried to write a […]

Peter Hirshberg and Tim Kring

Kring: I’ve been involved with TV for 20 years now, and I’ve told stories in a very linear and flat way. TV has had trouble holding its audience, so the networks are interested in tying online and offline. Hirshberg: With Crossing Georgia you tried to do new media? Kring: It jsut didn’t feel like it […]
