View Talk: “The Joy of Clicking

Bradley Shende, 2013 —

Five questions with: Bradley Shende

What motivates you?

bradley-shendeConnection, understanding, iteration and illumination.

What do you do for a living, and why?

I just click things. I play with technology for a living and and teach and talk about it in the media. If I had a label it would say “creative technologist”. I have a small lab where we build cool things and tell stories. I’m simply driven to do all these things because I can. I’m also a technology entertainer, and I think if someone tells you there’s a difference between entertainment and education, then they don’t know the first thing about either. I also love my work/play.

What TED talk do you think everyone should watch?

Gabe Zichermann: Gamification

Why are you excited to speak at TEDxManitoba?

I grew up in Winnipeg, but have been living in Vancouver for the last 20 years. I am super excited to be coming home to play.

What is your idea worth sharing?

The joy of clicking. I strongly believe the web is an extended human nervous system and that we are all connected within it.
