Sarah Szalavitz (@dearsarah) does social design under her company Robot7 and teaches at the MIT Media Lab. Her background was in law and then Hollywood. A self-described “champagne socialist,” she did deals for Michael Eisner’s web video venture Veoh and has been one of the key people connecting filmed entertainment to the network economy. Her focus is now much broader than Hollywood and she focuses on systems and questions. As she says “now everyone makes media….how do we encourage people to participate.”
