    Texting & Driving Survivor Liz Marks Shares her Story

    in Youth

    Liz Marks was a popular all american high school girl who was addicted to her smartphone. She knew not to text and drive but Liz says "Everyone does it." As she was driving she received a text from her mom and in that moment her life changed forever. 

    The accident left Liz blind in one eye and hard of hearing. It also left her with a diminished sense of smell and she is no longer able to create tears or fall asleep without medication. She says the most difficult part of all of it, was going from being very social and popular to being alone, without friends. Liz will be sharing her story as well as her mission of inspiring teens to put down their phones while behind the wheel. Also joining the conversation is Diana Graber, co-founder of CyberWise. Diana's expertise will help parents understand how to instill positive habits for their teens. CyberWise is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art resources for BUSY grownups who want to understand how to use digital media confidently and safely.

    What would Barbie look like as an Average Girl?

    in Youth

    Nickolay Lamm 

    “As a digital artist who majored in marketing at the University of Pittsburgh, he comes up with a provocative idea or question, studies it, and then provides Internet aggregators [...] with visual content that they post on their sites. Those images in turn get picked up on media websites, spurring commentary [...] and gets the aggregators a mention.” – Pittsburgh Post Gazette

    “I think my main value comes not from my graphic-design skills, but my thinking about an idea that will get media attention — and something that I care about — and executing my vision to get a cool visual.” – Pittsburgh Tribune Review

    “I think he’s being responsible — he’s not making anything up here,” says Dr. Doug Harper, a professor specializing in visual sociology at Duquesne University. “He’s finding ways to present information — visual summaries, really. It’s at the immediate level.” – Pittsburgh Tribune Review

    People often ask me, “How do you make something go viral?”

    I never try to make something viral for the sake of going viral, which is a very ambiguous term anyways. I try to make visuals which point out things which I feel are overlooked. Virality is just a side effect.

    I come up with a unique visual idea and work with artists and experts to bring my vision to life.

    I do lots of research. With each project, I say something new or elaborate on a subject in a way that’s never been done before. I consult with recognized professionals or use existing data. I direct each project through the whole process, working with talented artists to create flawless visuals.

    One of my biggest inspirations is Steve Jobs. I encourage everyone to see the “Secrets of Life,” a short Steve Jobs interview.
