Using tech as a tool: Experience People Movement

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, October 2, 2014

Using technology as a tool…not a lifestyle.  I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   He’s been a technology entrepreneur….but nowadays, Brian Hiss is on a different mission.   He’s touring the country to promote what he calls the Experience People Movement.  It’s not so much that tech is a problem…it’s more the way it is often deployed and used…

“A great example is Facebook.  Facebook is an ecosystem.  It’s an entire online virtual environment where it’s very immersive.  It’s sticky.  They want to keep the user in that experience rather than as we’ve named our tour, Experience People, rather than getting out into the real world and living those experiences.  Not just living vicariously through your friends’ and family’s posts on Facebook, but actually going out and experiencing like we used to.”

You can learn more….at Experiencepeople.org.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
