I was really in a mad race to find out what I could do to urgently preserve what I felt was vanishing." "I built an amazing team and we created an immersive experience that recreated the neighbourhood that I'm from the central district of Seattle and we built an opportunity to preserve the legacy of Jimi Hendrix, Quincy Jones, Ray Charles, Ernestine Anderson and Sir Mix A Lot." "In our race to create it we're losing access to history we're losing access to memories and these are the things that have inspired us and shaped our overall human essence." "What does it look like for us to be able to have John Lewis and Dr Martin Luther King teach us the civil rights movement using emerging technology where we can be front row seat right here in Atlanta." "We focus on a real Hub of collaboration where engineers and designers and programmers and artists and creators from a myriad of backgrounds converge to create solutions that are going to resonate with everyone across whole spectrum of humanity." "I'm currently writing a book now called Unapologetic Tech." "Technology and Humanity intertwine in ways that I believe are unapologetically transformative and I'm welcoming you all to the world of unapologetic Tech." "Experiential learning is what's going to shape the future of of Education it's going to shape the future of our connection and that should be taking place in libraries and malls and museums and airports."
