During the last six months members of R/GA’s Buenos Aires (BA) office have participated in a number of hackathons. Hackathons are no longer the geeky playground of full time techies. The best hackathons unite people from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds to focus participants on interesting, rewarding, and unique problems. This has lead to […]
Portland, Oregon hosted the 2nd annual XOXO Fest from Sept. 19th to the 22th. XOXO was originally born from a successful Kickstarter project created by Andy Baio and Andy McMillan. The conference is all about “independence” – shining a spotlight on independent creators and how they have turned traditional creation, business, and publishing models on their […]

A strange thing didn’t happen in Barcelona this week. I arrived home, unchanged and I suspect 70,000 other folks had the same experience, or lack of it. The event was gigantic. The new exhibition space at Fira Gran Via was 94,000 square meters – that’s in the neighborhood of 10 American football fields. There were […]
This year at SXSW, I’m talking about an ongoing experiment I’ve been doing here at R/GA for the past year. It’s not an experiment about software or hardware, nor does it involve social networks or mobile apps, it’s an experiment with the brainstorming process. Specifically, I wanted to see if there was a way we could improve blank canvas brainstorming to take into account the unique nature of digital products and services.
R/GA is going to be at SXSW this year, are you? Come check out any of our sessions.
