Simple technology used to create an immersive and highly emotional experience. RFID enabled LED bracelets.

If I was a brand that sponsored and event like a music festival or a nighttime nascar race I would be all over this. When you are able to create such a massive "AWE" moment it's like hitting a direct pipeline into a persons unconscious mind. There is so much equity in that positive permanence.

I find this whole Facebook study news laughable. The contrived indignation is a glorious spectacle. First off i think the study was pretty rudimentary. When people are surrounded by negativity or positivity the likely hood of emotional transference is high. This is simply a derivative behavior of negativity bias or polyanna bias. Secondly, everyone forgets that you don't pay for this Facebook shit. It's free and your just a guest here. You don't have to use it and they really don't owe you anything.
Facebook has generated anger among members of its social network after a study surfaced tied to its users' news feeds. Earlier this month, The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences published a study

Director of User Experience @ MMB
Introduction

I started as an early adopter of new media design in college under the guidance of George Larou http://www.meca.edu/portfolio/new-media-faculty-george-larou

While in college I immediately gravitated to the idea of building my creative ideas rather than just designing them. That lead me to learning actionscript, lingo and html. Little did I know that having that hybrid creative/developer approach would later greatly impact my career. 

After college I then became a new media designer at http://www.fabrica.it/ where I had the honor to work with some of the brightest minds in the early digital space.

I then cut my teeth in advertising as an art director for a few years at small yet very focused agency in South Florida. Shout out to my peeps at www.gobfw.com

In mid 2003 I returned to New England and fell into full-time professional freelance. During that time I had the pleasure to work with the insanely creative digital team at http://www.jdk.com 

Eventually my freelance work took the shape of my own "Self Titled Studio" which later turned my main client http://www.mmb580.com into my current employer.

At MMB I've helped build the digital department from inception with the help of some other very talented managers and team members who all work to ensure that creative ideas incorporate technology and vice versa.
