Create Virginia: Writer Kevin Roose Keynote on DIGITAL OWNERSHIP AND NFTS
August 3, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Presented on Zoom, NYT Technology Journalist Kevin Roose will be talking to us about Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs).
NFTs are a hot new thing that artists need to be aware of and understand, as they are a kind of digital signature and ownership on a work.
Kevin Roose is an award-winning technology columnist for The New York Times and the best-selling author of three books, Futureproof, Young Money, and The Unlikely Disciple. His column, “The Shift”, examines the intersection of tech, business, culture, and the combined effect they have on society. Recently, that has meant a lot of coverage of companies like Facebook and YouTube, as well as profiles of internet personalities like PewDiePie, and social phenomena like online radicalization and workplace automation.
He is the host of Rabbit Hole, a New York Times-produced narrative audio series about what the internet is doing to us, and a regular guest on The Daily, as well as other leading TV and radio shows. He frequently writes and speaks on topics including automation and A.I., social media, disinformation and cybersecurity, and digital wellness. Before joining The Times, he was a writer at New York magazine, and a host and executive producer of “Real Future,” a documentary TV series about technology and innovation.
