TEDxConstitutionDrive 2012 - Rolf Rando - "Ways Teen Girls Forge Online Identity"

Our 2012 theme was "Identity" This year we explored Identity in a way that went beyond the standard gender/race/age lines. We see Identity as the non-genetic DNA of us, one that is co-created by our environments and ourselves, and which drives in a powerful way our choices, our relationships and our lives. Speakers as diverse as Eric Drooker, New Yorker artist, to Beau Lewis, producer of the American Hipster series, to John Murray, scientist at the SRI International labs, came to share their perspectives on Identity. Rolf Rando, founder and CEO of ImageChef / Tunetug Rolf Rando is the founder and CEO of ImageChef Incorporated, which operates the imagechef.com photo creativity community. The company has over 2.5 million monthly users from around the world that use the site's simple tools to express themselves visually. Rolf's background is in computer graphics.
