Creating Space for BIG Ideas to Grow #theCube – Prime Cut

I love it when an idea blossoms into a wild field of creative growth. #theCube began as a spark, a seed and a desire to create space for big ideas to grow. It was at SXSW that we had an opportunity to mix music, tech, big thinkers and daring ideas into a long form conversation that streams live around the nets. #theCube is the culmination of some pretty imaginative friends who were naive enough to go along for the ride. Now some 4.3 Million views later we can now see an emerging form of this concept called #theCube. I knew that heritage media wouldn’t serve up long form conversations with really smart nodes because they still trade in the commodity of air time and hard wires beaming towards an ever dimming light of a tv set top. We knew that the net would be the free for all wilderness we’d explore with all our might.

As a documentary filmmaker, I am finalizing a large-scale project chronicling these important days, visiting with the great minds generating real innovation in this industry, and capturing the birth of pivotal ideas that will shape our future. The current explosion of data flowing into the net is straining the capacity of the current infrastructure to handle it, and that flow will only increase daily over the next several years. As consumers, we crave smarter electronic devices and expect the ability to share more details of our world anywhere at anytime. The crush of all that information will get harder to handle if innovation isn’t applied at all levels, from mobile devices to social networks to ubiquitous connectivity to reliable data storage to secure encryption to predictive data modeling. “Riding (Big) Data” is a film and tv series I’m excited to share documenting how our society is rethinking what all this swirling data can do for... read more
