Presentation I gave at X Media Lab in Lausanne, Switzerland on September 27th, 2013. Trying to sum up all the lessons I've learned working on the TFI New Media Fund and Tribeca Hacks in 10 points and 20 minutes. There were videos too. They were awesome.

  31. 31. Of course as I was giving this talk I thought of many more lessons I’ve learned. Here are just a few. 11. Learn to listen. Storytelling is as much about listening as telling. 12. Make the interaction the story. For example the border in Gaza/Sderot: http://gaza-sderot.arte.tv/ 13. Be clear about your indicators for success. If you don’t know what success means for your project, you may lose your way. 14. Sometimes you should just delight your audience. Give them things to do that make them feel wonderful.
