Co-founder and CEO of Cultivated Wit Baratunde Thurston delivered the morning keynote April 24, 2014 at RailsConf in Chicago.
A former Onion executive, author of best-selling humor book, wouldabeen CS major and standup comedian, he put forth a theory of collaborative creation that goes beyond seeing "technology" merely as a distribution platform for "content."
Also there were laughs. Lots of them.
