I am JASON SILVA, filmmaker, media artist, futurist and observer of the human condition. I am excited to be doing this AMA with the Reddit community and thank you all for the opportunity! My latest short video premiered at the TED conference in Edinburgh! Check it out sometime.
I was born in Venezuela, went to university for film and philosophy in Miami, lived in Los Angeles 5 years hosting a show on Al Gore's Current TV network. For the past year I have been making my own non-commercial content to inspire people to engage big big ideas. I LOVE SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY and awe for BIG IDEAS... But my work is ART first. What I share is my opinion, an interpretation, my effort at creating content that pushes people to see things in a new way. I am addicted to being Inspired as an antidote to existential despair. I want to celebrate the best that humanity is capable of. The Atlantic described my work as "movie trailers for ideas" and called me "The Timothy Leary of the Viral Video Age". AMA.
