I am Martin. I would describe myself as a humanist by nature, creative generalist by education and Interaction Designer by profession. I am interested in the hands-on people-centered exploration of technology, social action and the critical application of design to playfully prototype unbelievable ideas into powerful reality.
I TEDx because I believe in demystifying and democratizing technology and hope to pilot it towards the inspired imagination and skillful hands of individuals and communities who are ready to create the change they believe in.
My idea worth spreading to present at TEDxCapeTown 2012 is that the true potential of technology is too great to be trapped within the imagination of technologists. My talk is called 'hitchhiking open technology towards local ingenuity'.
