Folks We Admire – Scott Kelly

April 20, 2016

Astronauts! Radiation! and Twins! discussed by (a twin herself): Ona Rygelis!

These topics are of interest to me and I also have a twin sister- so I’m naturally drawn to astronaut Scott Kelly‘s story… On March 2, 2016, American astronaut Scott Kelly returned safely to Earth after a 340 day mission aboard the International Space Station. Kelly, and his Russian counterpart Mikhail Kornienko, set the record for the longest amount of time spent in space during a single mission, by any astronaut, ever. The […]

Folks We Admire: Tracy Chou

December 16, 2015

Tracy Chou, head software engineer at Pinterest, has an impressive resume.  She began her work in the tech field by interning at Facebook and Google, before taking a leading role at Quora, the site that promises its users “the best answer to any question.” Her list of achievements, however, includes one more major bullet point: making public the massive imbalance of men to women in Silicon Valley.  The tech world is overwhelmingly male, with many companies having only around 10-20% of their workforce represented by women. After the October 2013 Grace Hopper Celebration (named after the great female American computer scientist), where she found others sharing […]

David Chang Talks Tech in Food

August 25, 2015

At SXSW Interactive, restauranteur and author David Chang spoke with Matt Buchanan about his experience combining tech and dining. Today, almost all companies are tech companies, even if that is not their predominant industry. Tech has changed everything, but David Chang believes its value for dining should be ease for experimentation. He also talked about collecting customer data to enhance the customer’s dining experience. He discussed his new app Maple, which is a “lunchbox on demand” of the best food delivered to your door. Logistics, meal options and price were fine-tuned in a trial and error tech process. David, the self proclaimed “Normavore”, loves normal […]

ImageThink Graphic Records the IBM Roadshow, Chicago

June 30, 2015

This month, the ImageThink team was invited to graphic record all of the IBM Roadshow sessions in Chicago. This conference, focusing on “New Way To Work” attracted attendees who were actively participating in the conversation.

Our setting was also remarkable as attendees, speakers, and ImageThink […]

These eye-catching murals not only drive traffic to booths on the show floors and engage attendees in person, they also drive traffic in the virtual world: as we capture the insights visually, we tweet out these images with the brand’s social media handle and […]
