I shared a spiel called “Art and Tech are Old Pals” at Wordcamp Vancouver in a full version but shared a spontaneous and shorter version while at Social Media Clubhouse at SXSW 2011.
In this spiel, i discuss a “people’s history” of media creation and my tactics and thoughts about how to foster creativity by viewing the past and participating in the creation of the future.
During SXSW Interactive Festival, Dave shares stories of analog arts and crafts, sparking creativity, using technology to tell stories and remaining interesting using examples from historical artists and his own experience.
You’ll see lots of interesting props pulled from an old-timey suitcase and a few laughs along the way plus practical tips you can implement to enhance your own creative process.
Note: Thanks to Social Media Clubhouse for filming.
After spieling at NXNE 2012 in Toronto with “Social Media in Revolutions and Disasters, I shared some stories and thoughts about social media – specifically for bands and their fans – in a series created by Intel.

After welcoming you like Mr. Rogers, he plays records, pours tea, shows static montages from Palau, and pulls out all sorts of projects from grade school country reports to Cannabis Culture articles. Finally he shows books by heroes who provided solace and wisdom and then sends you back to the bus stop.

The finished piece is rather delightful and allows me to spiel forth on many of the topics i enjoy so much including my formulas and tactics for creation including philosophical and personal motivations. Cam remixed my words with fresh source material including hero cards, paper point collages, Grateful Dead music and inter-disciplinary artists – and allows enough time for me to get some legs under my stories and give props to my friends and heroes. Thanks for that.

A few months back, I recorded an episode of Lab with Leo at the greedy productions studios towards Railtown way. Turns out mine was one was one the last as The Lab was axed. But fear not, Leo is rolling on with myriad other projects.
Anyhow, in this clip (recorded by my amigo Bread who gets name-checked in the segment) we talk about my longstanding penchant for self-publishing, personal expression and artistic remixing or ephemeral objects.
