I had so much fun this year at IDF checking out all the new technologies and catching up with my Intel family all over the world working on the coolest things to ever happen on earth in tech!

Katherine who does gamer artist relations and stuff at Intel, so happy to meet this cool girl! She’s doing a lot of making and shaking and has a bunch of experience doing events like Comicon International! I sense magic collaborations in the works for us!

here’s a family reunion that we have done about once a year since I first met her in 2007! :) We are constantly invited to a lot of the same events and social media things. We go wayyyyyy back when we were invited to Richard Branson’s airline launch and she is just as cool today as she was the day I met her. I am so happy to know her and I love seeing all her adventures and her successes! I always cheer her on and I think nothing but good thoughts for this amazing artist, creator and collaborator that some of you know as iJustine :)

WOW! I got to meet so many cool DJ’s at IDF this year. I love that Intel has really starting bringing DJ culture into the technology sphere, and I love that Scott spearheaded this initiative! Thud Rumble makes some amazing things! I can’t wait to work more with these guys! Throughout the IDF show different Dj’s were at different areas but Yogafrog, DJ JE, DJ Killa Jewel, Qbert, Mix Master Mike, etc. were dropping some amazing turntable action being real dj’s! Loved it!!!

Speaking of Octoblu, here I am with Moheeb, whom I previously met at SXSW 2015 this year. I love that he’s doing such next gen work on what our future will look like in a world where more and more devices will continue to connect and communicate with eachother.

This kid is amazing, I ran into him previously on another trip to SF but didn’t have any money, I saw him again and handed him a bundle of cash, because he’s just that cool!! You might recognize his face because he’s been on the Ellen show. :)

What’s this!! This is LIVE CODING, like a performance artist who does coding live on screen and you can watch him creating applications and experiences right in front of your eyes. I think this idea is really fun and really cool! This is JT Nimoy!

Thanks for checking out some of the pics. I took pictures with soooo many more people but I haven’t gotten the images from everyone yet! Thank you so much for making this again one of the greatest shows ever for me! I am blown away by how many people remember me from shows around the world and I just want to give a very special thanks to Kellie Bayer for believing in me and continuing to bring me into cool projects working on the coolest technologies. She’s one of the greatest Intel minds I’ve ever had the chance to work with. Much love and respect to Victor who continues to have me involved with shows around the world as well!
