Anne Balsamo
We worked together  •  Principal Investigator, Research-Design Project: Digital Experiences for the AIDS Memorial Quilt and Full Professor, The New School. University
Anne has a remarkable ability to think very clearly about new media (in all of its manifestations), bridging from the purely theoretical to ... the very pragmatic. I've known her work from early days at PARC, to her work at USC, and now at the New School. She has always thought very clearly about what media is, how it functions, and the effects it has on its consumers. She is both broad and deep in media, and a wonderful person to talk to; she's an important person if you want to understand where media is today, and where it's going in the future.
