“Open Up Powerful Partnerships”: AOL si presenta con queste parole. Aprirsi e confidare nelle collaborazioni potenti. E non è difficile confidare in David Shing, in arte Shingy, che tiene il suo discorso e poi, con una naturalezza e una spontaneità disarmanti, mi ruba il telefono per farsi un selfie

What’s on the horizon that will push the boundaries of creativity? Is it even on your radar yet? Let David Shing, Digital Prophet from AOL, paint a picture of the tech of tomorrow.

AOL’s David Shing is the self-proclaimed “Digital Prophet” and led a wonderful talk, “The Future of Technology,” at this year's 3% Conference. He discussed the tech we’re seeing now in our branding and marketing, and how this tech will affect the evolution of storytelling in advertising in the coming years. 

Fast-talking, free spirit Shing is human caffeine. Several of my colleagues said he “woke them up” and was just the jolt they needed. His hair alone looked like he just got finished playing in the electricity lab, and from his enthusiasm, he wanted to share his electricity with the audience. We all appreciated it. 


At the 3% Conference in New York City, AOL’s resident digital prophet David Shing - better known as “Shingy” - discussed what is exciting him most in today’s tech landscape and how brands are using these technologies in ways that are actually effective.

I Spent 45 Minutes Listening to Shingy and Now I'm Even More Afraid of the Future

I heard Shingy speak yesterday.

If you don't know (lucky!), Shingy is AOL's "digital prophet," a bullshit title that Shingy—aka David Shing—himself acknowledges is bullshit, but is also very effective in making us all talk about Shingy. His actual job, as he describes it, is to think about "the etherealness of why." I think his job is basically just to go to conferences and be Shingy.

SYMPATHY FOR THE PROPHET

Nous avons eu le plaisir et le privilège de rencontrer pendant une heure au iMedia Summit 2016 de Biarritz, David Shing, Digital Prophet chez AOL. David Shing, c’est le monsieur qui se coiffe avec un pétard comme on aurait dit dans les années 80 et qui aussi truste les keynotes des événements mondiaux les plus prestigieux, de Dmexco à Cannes en passant donc par Biarritz. Nous avons donc bien évidemment voulu en savoir plus sur sa coupe de cheveux, son rôle de prophète mais aussi sa vision sur ce marché du marketing digital qui ne manquera jamais de nous surprendre.
