“I am interested in a phase we are entering. I call it “telelogical evolution,” evolution with purpose.” ~ Jonas Salk
What Dr. Salk was referring to was the idea of evolution by design, designing for the future, anticipating the future. My guest on this week’s Awakening to Awareness Radio Show is actively engaged in this transformational arena.
A 25-year on-air broadcast veteran in network news and public affairs reporting, Phyllis Haynes was one of the first women, and Black woman, to host a major market (New York City) show, as well as report on major issues for ABC Evening News and Good Morning America. Today, as an independent producer, she is devoted to helping unsung thought leaders, inventors, and creatives increase their exposure and understanding of how to use the New Media terrain to bring their work into the world.
On the show Phyllis spoke passionately about her love for the digital environment and why. She encouraged people to embrace New Media communication technologies because they’re free, easily accessible, their use contributes to mankind, and they enable all of us to strengthen our connections and benefit from a “collective dance.” She also talked about her current work in/with digital storytelling, her advocacy for Net Neutrality, and her interest in / independent project on vampires!
Phyllis’ bio and the show podcast are available here. Consider listening, peeking into tomorrow, and learning why New Media technologies can be valuable to you, too.
