Hyper Island invited to digital round table

The small US hillside town of Boulder is not only the home to leading digital agency Crispin Porter + Bogusky. Tuesday afternoon 17th of February, Mattias Hansson, CEO of Hyper Island, is invited to a round table discussion at the University of Colorado at Boulder, USA.

Jeff Howe, contributing editor at WIRED and author of CROWDSOURCING, will moderate. The discussion will focus broadly on the digital future and is intended, in particular, to explore and articulate what the graduate of the future will need to know to make a contribution as an employee in the digital/interactive industry.

Other participants include Scott Mellin, CEO at Factory Design Labs, Jay Wolff, Owner/CEO at Odopod, Robert Reich, President at OneRiot, Don Springer, Founder/Creator of Collective Intellect, David Slayden, Advertising Sequence Head/Associate Professor at CU, Paul Voakes, Dean of School of Journalism and Mass Communications at CU, and others.

School of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Colorado is exploring the possibilities to start up a new digital/interactive Masters Program. Hyper Island is invited to share its experiences from 14 years of producing international high-end learning experiences.
