A Case For Optimism

Tiffany Shlain, award-winning filmmaker, speaker, and founder of The Webby Awards, looks through history to the present to amplify the notion that the world is actually getting better, and why opticism -- optimism with a healthy dose of skepticism -- can help push our future where we want it to go.

A celebrated thinker and catalyst, her films and work have received 60 awards and distinctions including a “Disruptive Innovation Award” from the Tribeca Film Festival. Four of her films have premiered at Sundance, including her acclaimed feature documentary, Connected: An Autoblogography about Love, Death & Technology, which The New York Times hailed as “Incredibly engaging” and “Examining everything from the Big Bang to Twitter.” The US State Department has selected two of her films (Connected and Brain Power: From Neurons to Networks) as part of The America Film Showcase when they send Tiffany and her films to embassies around the world to represent America. They are sending her to Israel in November 2013.

Tiffany is a world-renowned speaker and has been featured at institutions including Google, Harvard, NASA, and Fortune 500 companies, and delivered the campus-wide commencement address at UCBerkeley, for which she received a standing ovation from 11,000 people.

She is a contributing writer for Harvard Business Review, Documentary Magazine, vogue.com, and Fast Company listed her as one of the people to follow on twitter for 2013. The TED Conferences published her first book, titled Brain Power: From Neurons to Networks. Her latest film The Science of Character will be released this winter. She writes a quarterly newsletter called Breakfast @ Tiffany's. She lives in Northern California with her husband and two children.
