“Creativity is intelligence having fun.”
I first met Tiffany Shlain March 2015, at The Corner Bar of Hotel Boulderado in Boulder, Colorado. I use the word “met” loosely. Tiffany wasn’t actually there with me at the bar…not in person anyway. She was present through her award-winning documentary, Connected: An Autoblogography about Love, Death & Technology.
Eating dinner alone–on a business trip with my computer behind my plate and headphones in my ears–I spent an hour and twenty-five minutes enthralled in Tiffany’s story about how personal and family crises led her to investigate the connections between her life experiences and the experiences of others around the world.

Tiffany is a brilliant, groundbreaking, cloud-filmmaker who is on a mission to bring about social change. She loves exploring big, challenging issues, diving into moral dilemmas around technology and humanity, and investigating the meaning and purpose of life. She uses film as an emotional trigger to generate a global dialogue about something significant, and she adds value for others by challenging her viewers to change the world for the better, one person at a time.
