The Year of Living Fearlessly By Robin Fisher Roffer
The world’s most dynamic people are constantly evolving. Isn’t it time you reinvent yourself? I’m feeling that itch again. I’ve never liked standing still too long. That’s not the way to move forward. Best selling author Michael Port agrees. When I asked him, “What is the single biggest challenge facing you in 2014?” He answered, “Staying interested.” Bingo! That’s the feeling. That’s the itch.
It takes courage to stay interested – to be interesting – to live an interesting life. You have to reinvent yourself over and over. Before you get bored, completely burned out, done with the B.S. and so full of anxiety you can’t sleep, take a healthy dose of my 12-month prescription for fearlessly doing this year differently than the past.
The Museum of Modern Art has plucked a former game designer from London to fill a newly created position aimed at defining and energizing its digital strategy.
The appointment of Fiona Romeo as director of digital content and strategy, announced Friday, is MoMA's latest move in a broader effort to engage audiences in the digital sphere. In 2012, MoMA created a position called director of research and development, in which Paola Antonelli has been experimenting with technology to reach audiences beyond the confines of the museum's physical space.
"The digital world is an essential part of the analog world—you can't even divide them," said Glenn Lowry, MoMA's director. "We realized there were dozens of digital projects we were developing, most often independently of each other. We need to start thinking seriously about pulling all these different strands together."
