Announcing our March Meetup Speakers:


(1) Ricky Bacon: VP of Engineering, Noise

Ricky has been helping companies create interesting platforms for over 15 years — from consulting with Perceptive Pixel when they were still working out of their NYU space, to leading JWT in creating the first social network for squirrels (Arduino project). At Noise he's in charge of the engineering department and responsible for spearheading technological innovation. One side project he's working on is MyLittleTweeter; it's an audio lifelogging platform that captures, analyzes and stores audio from his 5 month old son and sends notifications to a private Twittter account. Those notifications will print out on an IoT printer at his desk so he can have physical representations of his son's mood throughout the day (it wavers between happy and hungry).

.

(2) Eric Weissman: Co-Founder & CIO, Internet Media Labs

Eric is a Co-Founder and Chief Innovation Officer for Internet Media Labs, where he leverages his arsenal of intellectual property, programming code, systems, process, and knowhow to innovate, prototype and develop leading edge social media and other Web based automated technologies.

Our events and #Labchat series are focused on bringing together thought leaders and doers in a collaborative learning environment.

(4) Matthew Quint: Director, Columbia Business School's Center on Global Brand Leadership

Matthew Quint is the leading global forum on branding issues for researchers and executives. Matthew is the co-producer of the Center's acclaimed BRITE Conference series which brings together over 400 big thinkers in industry and academia to discuss how innovation and technology help build strong brands. He also works with senior executives from various leading companies -- including Coach, Deloitte, Edelman, Google, SAP, and Visa -- to conduct research, produce events, and promote knowledge sharing among branding and marketing professionals.

(5) James Vasile: Organizer, OpenITP.org
