Keynote speaker: Douglas Rushkoff

Instead of optimizing human beings for technology, we should be optimizing technology for humans.

A futurist, author, and documentarian, Douglas Rushkoff has spent his prolific career thinking about how new media and technology are impacting culture, business, and the economy.

Named one of the world’s 10 most influential thinkers by MIT, Rushkoff has written 15 bestselling books and coined such concepts as “viral media,” “social currency,” and “digital natives.” His talks are a culmination of his pioneering work and an infallible source of what’s to come.
