Looking forward to a lively discussion tomorrow with +Nick Law Bob Safian, Doreen Lorenzo, Greg Pass, and Meehan Crist. Post questions and join us. https://plus.google.com/events/c1t18e7eo7f1oschvuhr1cj0q7k
 
The Future of StoryTelling speaker Hangout series returns on Wednesday, January 8th, at 12:30pm EST, and kicks off with an intimate, live-streamed conversation about bridging the gap between art and tech.
 

As Chief Creative Officer of Google Creative Lab, Robert Wong employs the power of storytelling to help develop amazing technologies like Google Glass. According to Wong, it’s not enough for technology to be awesome—it needs to have a great story about why we should love it and how it fits into our lives. See Wong’s 5-minute FoST Film, “The fiction of The Science” (embedded below) to better understand why we should never underestimate a creative person’s power to shape the future, and join us on January 8th to voice you opinion. Questions can be submitted to Wong on FoST’s Google Plus or Twitter (@FoSTorg) accounts, and we’ll do our best to include them in the conversation. 


Virtual Roundtables feature a different FoST speaker every Wednesday at 12:30pm EST, as part of the ongoing weekly series. Check out the full line-up of speakers and topics on our website here: http://bit.ly/1ej8gFe.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Future of StoryTelling. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

World's first stop motion video shot entirely through Google Glass from our very on +Tu Uthaisri 
 
Since the beginning, filmmakers have been telling us how they would use Glass for storytelling. Now that the Explorer Program is underway, there's a lot of directing, producing and exploring happening, and we're inspired. Filmmakers from the Glass Creative Collective, our partnership with top-notch film schools, will be sharing more in the coming months. In the meantime, here's Catch, a short film by our very own +Tu Uthaisri.

Makes sense to me. Do you buy it?
People whose happiness was based on a sense of higher purpose and service to others had gene markers indicating possible better long-term health.

Are they saying that the content of our lives - our choices - can drive gene expression? It seems to counter the more often heard idea that our genes control our lives. It seems to be saying we can choose which genes are expressed in greater or fewer numbers. It's fascinating to me to consider the implications and possibilities behind the notion that the ideas we choose could set all kinds of far reaching biological processes in to motion....or not...
