'Creative Class' featuring Jill Tarter

Jill Tarter

The SETI Institute's Jill Tarter is featured in an online series created by WeTransfer that explores influential voices in music, design, and science.

From the WeTransfer thecreativeclass.tv/#tarter:

"The 'Creative Class' series highlights influential people within the creative industry, sharing their thoughts, musings, and opinions on their own creativity, the industry, and how technology is changing it all.

In 2002, Richard Florida wrote about a group, named The Creative Class, that would form the driving force for the social and economic development of our post-industrial cities. A group of people made up of knowledge workers, designers, intellectuals and various types of artists. This group and their work represent an important shift in the way our world is developing.

Simultaneously, the technology-driven democratization of culture we witnessed in the past decades has brought along an era of unparalleled freedom for the creative industries, bringing along many challenges and opportunities. Many of today's influential creatives, whether that's musicians, designers, or scientists, are people who have smartly adapted to technology and adopted new ways of creating and putting out original ideas."
