‘Connected’ Live on iTunes; Director Tiffany Shlain Does AMA

on Wednesday, Feb. 6th

My interview with director Tiffany Shlain about her unique “autobiographical film” Connected remains one of my favorite conversations in the past few years. And I have a lot of conversations.

After a long stretch of screenings and a DVD release Connected became available on iTunes yesterday, and as part of the press push Shlain, the founder of the Webby Awards, will be taking part in a Reddit AMA today at 1PM Pacific.
