Gratitude-October (16)

-For the complimentary 3-day pass to the Digital Hollywood Conference. Met smart, passionate, generous people. Attended 3 panels. One about AR (Augmented Reality)/MR (Mixed Reality), one about Social Data and Social Reach in partnership with Hollywood, and the last one was AR/MR in Hollywood and Advertising. Good info in all. Thanks to all the panelists who participated and shared their knowledge/expertise.

-For Amanda who hooked me up with the ticket.
-For K. Jullien for making it happen for us. Very nice.

-For learning things that shifted my way of thinking about storytelling. Ex. Instead of storytelling. Story making. (Thanks Rob!) Now the question is how to create content (story form) for AR? That’s something I’d like to do.

-For learning about data collecting and how it’s utilized in marketing, with brands, with influencers. My favorite panel today.

-For Amanda (again) who told me my brand right away when I asked her while she was driving us back to the apartment. Apparently my brand is Charity, Transparency, Community. She rattled them off so fast I had to ask her to repeat them so I could write them down as to not forget. I just couldn’t think that way and now I understand/accept the concept a bit more. I’ve been confused about the term forever. I didn’t like the idea of branding people. I can understand things/services being brands but not people. I think about branding people as like almost a literal brand on us. Being property and for sale, like cattle, slaves, war prisoners. I know, I know. Dark. But after today I’m opening up and thinking about things differently.

-For The Skirball Cultural Center for being a nice venue. The staff and security were A+ Awesome. Helpful. Skirball_Evergreen_50_10.16.18

-For T. for sharing and informing me of where she’s at. I wish her good luck with everything.
-For my Piano Ballads playlist on Spotify. Love relationship based music. Truly love it!
-For myself for making big changes in my life in the last 2 days.
