Are you attending the 2017 Science On a Sphere conference this year in Detroit? I'll be making a presentation and leading a panel on April 26 about VR and 360 video. Then on April 27, I'll be presenting a talk about filmmaking on spherical surfaces. Please say hello (or get in touch if you can't make it in person)!

I'm traveling for a couple of weeks, so it's apropos that my weekly blog should be about the kind of music that celebrates places travelled, people met, and challenges pursued. It's also about a recent sold-out concert memorializing one of America's great visionaries, all too easily overlooked in the digital era. Take five, click here, and remember the words as you go into your day.

Vinyl LPs: practically an ancient form of communication. But then, so is oil painting. So is poetry. So is theater. Your week is about to get busy. (It always does, right?) Therefore, reset yourself to 33 1/3 and consider how you might bring some focus to the situation. My weekly blog is now live.

Trust me: just because the term "neo-Marxist" appears in this essay doesn't mean you'll be bored. This blog masquerades as an article about economics, but it's really about you: your life, your aspirations, the dreams that propel you to do things beyond simply what you must to get through the day. Take five, be inspired, and share.

If you search for the origins of anything, you'll rarely find a source that looks particularly promising. With Spring just now waking the Northern Hemisphere from gray torpor, my weekly blog considers the origins of creative ideas. Enjoy and, y'know.... share.

Does the increasing artificiality of our cultural references untether us from the real world? It's an ironic thought, and it comes with enormous implications. When common human references get subsumed by renderings of uncommon things, does culture change...or dissolve? That's the subject of my weekly blog, live now. Check it out, discuss...and share!

Politics has always been the vortex of complex societies. These days that vortex seems particularly intense. One has to wonder how art and politics can coexist and how they can inform each other. My weekly blog is now live. You can vote in favor...by sharing!

You can't leave transitions to chance. You can't simply act on autopilot. Transitions define how well your future connects to your present and your past. Decisions you make about stuff you thought was just interstitial filler will greatly influence your potential for success, no matter what's at stake. Watch your step! My weekly blog is now live. http://1auglobalmedia.com/blogcontent/transitions

Culture grows when it can exchange ideas freely. It's true that the internet has enabled more information exchange than ever, but some of culture's greatest inspirations do not easily escape their frames. In a daring move, The Metropolitan in NYC has taken steps to change the situation. My weekly blog appears below. Enjoy!
