Baratunde Thurston on Funky Geekdom and the Future of Humanity
Baratunde was one of my favorite people to see for the first time at SXSW in Austin last week.
An Internet friend from back in the mists of time, a.k.a. about a year ago, Baratunde impresses me with his ability to merge technical and creative talents into a single powerhouse individual, something that more and more people our age are doing.
What’s your job title? Who cares?! With the rise of the creative class and the necessity of one person taking on a huge sphere of life- and work-skills in order to thrive and remain relevant, those of us who live the under-30 lifestyle have rejected professional pigeonholes in favor of putting ourselves holistically into projects and personal relationships.
That, and we’re all gonna get our Internet brain chips soon.
Watch and learn, yo!
