Jason Silva is a media artist with a strong interest in the intersection of technology with mankind.
In this interview he describes how big data visualizations of different behavior patterns (like flights across the US) all share a common organic quality.
On the notion of disruptive change, Jason points out that he comes from a newer generation that is more comfortable with leaving a digital trail. The payback is huge: ‘engineered serendipity’ means that we are being presented with information which continues to be more useful to us.
