We talk about

  • what brought out his inner artist
  • his interest with getting symbols and objects out to real life
  • reaction from other people and how our every day life is influenced by this
  • how about a speach bubble above every head and a “see profile” option?
  • why he is interested in privacy and data mining
  • I want to be seen versus I am transparant
  • artsy friends and their relationship to modern technology
  • how it is to be in Berlin
