LDV Vision Summit

meEvan Nisselson reached out to me to do a fireside chat with him at his LDV Vision Summit.  It wasn’t sitting by a fireplace but up on stage at his two day event.   The event is centered around entrepreneurs and ideas that use digital imaging and video technology across their businesses be it for consumers or for business to business.

The data is there that using images captures eyeballs.  To see something vs read something can be easier, more intuitive and quicker to take in.  Look at Pinterest, Tumblr and YouTube.  Interacting with pictures makes a huge difference.

Day 2 - Joanne WIlsonI really do like the conversation Evan and I had.  The card above is really clever and it takes all the tidbits we discussed and puts it into a visual caption with words.  Very much in-line with what his summit stands for.  I find the chats an easier way to talk to people in front of an audience.  It is free-flowing and authentic.  I could have talked to Evan for a lot longer and that to me says it all.

    Starting to see more businesses in fin tech that translate written machine readable news stories into voice. Similar to photos, hearing things can be different than reading them.

      hearing and visually seeing something is a completely different experience. no doubt.

    The LDV summit keeps getting better year after year. I heard about it via a company I invested in that’s in the image space.Is the video of that chat (or others) available?

  4. panterosa,

    There are many ideas where I declare that if it can’t be made into an image, it’s not found its center. The right visualization vehicle carries the story of several merged data sets into an idea you can eat in the blink of an eye.
