Privacy is dead but tech is amazing … Scoble wows LDA

Robert Scoble left quite an impression on us last night. From his declaration that privacy is dead to the innovative uses of wearables, scannables and beacons, we all learned a great deal.

Our friends at Switcher Studio were on hand to film the event. Their production of The Future of Tech: An Evening with Robert Scoble is here for all who missed it. More coverage from Nick and team is available at Switcher Studio (Thanks Guys!).

LDA Welcomes Tech Guru Robert Scoble June 16

Robert Scoble, one of the world’s most influential technology journalists, bloggers and authors, will speak at the Louisville Digital Association’s June gathering. The noted video blogger well known for almost single-handedly vaulting several technology startups to national and international exposure will discuss the future of technology, entrepreneurship and the digital space at the Muhammad Ali Center from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m., Tuesday, June 16.

Tickets for the event, which includes hors d’ouevres and a cash bar, are $20 and available via the ticket form below.

Robert Scoble comes to LouisvilleScoble’s visit was made possible by an array of generous supporters of the LDA. Brown-Forman, Kindred Healthcare, CafePress, Red e App, Interapt, WeStyle, LEAP and InsiderLouisville.

“These sponsors saw an opportunity to bring a bona fide tech visionary to town to help us learn, but also to show off the innovation and forward-thinking here,” said LDA president Jason Falls. “This is another opportunity for the innovative brands and companies in town to lift up Louisville while being uplifted by Louisville. To learn from Robert and, in turn, help him see the potential and progress happening here is a real gift from these sponsors.”

Scoble is most famous for being the original Microsoft blogger, taking the “ask forgiveness, not permission” approach before corporate blogging was widely accepted. His analysis of the tech scene and points to startup companies over the years has been a boon to apps and entrepreneurs alike.

He is the co-author of what is thought to be the first true book about corporate blogging, Naked Conversations, and his most recent effort, The Age of Context, both titles written with Shel Israel. Scoble’s long-time blog, Scobleizer, is still an industry standard read despite his shift to publishing exclusively on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ in August of 2014. He can be found on Facebook at facebook.com/robertscoble or Twitter at twitter.com/scobleizer.

Thank you to our generous sponsors!
