The value of emerging (and failed) tech
Google Wave. Second Life. Yo! Google Glass. Is there value in developing on emerging technology, even though the tech may fail? In this #wjchat-style session, we’ll share the stories and lessons learned from early adoption. Bring your CueCat.
Robert Hernandez, aka WebJournalist, is an Associate Professor of Professional Practice at USC Annenberg, but he’s not an academic… he’s more of a “hackademic.” His most recent work includes Augmented Reality, Wearables/Google Glass and Virtual Reality, in which he and his students produce VR experiences under their brand: Jovrnalism. He serves on the Online News Association board and a lifetime member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.
