I love the internet, "new media", code, games, and gadgets. But after seeing Derek Jacobi in King Lear at BAM, I felt an aliveness that went down to my toetips and lasted well into the next day. Going deep (not the shallows), going far afield (beyond my social media echo chamber), and being inner - I want balance with all the cool web stuff I do, and with extremely limited (and dwindling time). My first pass at finding that energizing mix - with the help of the internet and other media, even.
Kip is an SVP doing digital innovation stuff in advertising. He’s been a creative director, a copywriter, a Congressional speechwriter, a computer game designer, and union organizer.
