|We tagged David Berkowitz this week!|
1. David, when did you first discover your love for technology?
One of my earliest memories of really embracing technology was when I wrote my first book report in first grade on Stuart Little. My family had our first PC (my brother already had an Apple IIe), and I learned how to use the thesaurus on Wordperfect. I never turned back. Typing had a great impact on me too, allowing me to get thoughts on paper much faster than I could write them, so even in the early 80s I seemed to be itching to be a blogger.
2. How do you earn a living?
It isn’t by blogging. I’m Director of Emerging Media and Client Strategy at 360i, the digital marketing agency, where I help big brands with their social media and mobile strategies.
3. What keeps you up at night?
I sleep pretty well, thanks. What really keeps me up though is information overload.
4. What do you do when you’re not working?
I’m relatively recently married (still within the first year) and my wife and I love to travel. During the summer it’s fun exploring various parts of New York City, where I live. I like to catch movies, I read a good amount, and thanks to the DVR I manage to watch a lot of TV (my latest ‘discovery’: Californication – can’t wait for the next season).
5. You’ve looked in your crystal ball and have seen the future of enterprise IT. What does it look like?
It’s a big, white, puffly cloud. Not the cumulo nimbus kind. This is a very happy cloud, the cottony kind.
Bonus Question: If Stephen Spielberg was going to make a movie about your life, what would it be called?
Bloggers of the Lost Ark? No… Saving Private Berkowitz… no, that’s not it either. Here it is – I’d actually title the film by the screen name I used on the dating site when I met my wife: “Google This.”
