TEDxRegentsPark - Stefan Agamanolis - 7/30/09

Slow Communication This is a technology/design theme we're pursuing lately - it's an extension of notions from the "slow food" movement into technology and communication. It would make a nice talk within the themes of "What's next in Tech" or "Tales of Invention"... Stefan Agamanolis heads Distance Lab, a creative research initiative bringing together technology, design and the arts to redefine and overcome distance. In addition to conducting academic research, Distance Lab works with briefs from industry and governmental partners, providing advice, generating ideas and building prototypes that inspire and can lead to new innovative products and services. Stefan has over 10 years of experience inside the MIT Media Lab, first as a student and later as one of the founding research directors at Media Lab Europe, its former sister lab in Dublin, Ireland. There he led the Human Connectedness group, an interdisciplinary team that explored the future of human relationships as mediated by technology. His work and that of his researchers has won a number of awards and has been exhibited in diverse venues including Ars Electronica (Austria), the Osaka National Museum of Art (Japan), the Victoria and Albert Museum (UK), and the Wired NextFest (USA). He speaks and consults internationally on a variety of digital media topics. He holds Masters and PhD degrees in Media Arts and Sciences from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Computer Science from Oberlin College. He was born and raised in the state of Ohio in the United States.
