Presenting The Latest Internet Trends
Webby Talks is our unique view into the ever-changing landscape of what’s happening online, designed to provoke and inspire by highlighting some of the most interesting trends, and innovative work on the Internet. The presentation runs for 30-45 minutes and is based on research from more than 13,000 entries into last year’s Webby Awards, and a recent survey of 2,000 Americans.
This past year’s Webby Talks theme was Everything You Think Is True: How the Internet has fragmented our collective reality and why that’s not (entirely) a bad thing.
The Webbys discussed the positive and negative impacts of granting the Internet the power to shape each and every individual’s perception of reality; and how the same tools that are making it harder to tell fact from fiction also hold the keys to a future where “reality” adapts to meet individual needs—from voice-enabled companionship to specialized education through AR, VR-based therapies, and far beyond.
Last year The Webby Awards executive team visited the 250 of the best and brightest Advertising, Media, Technology companies and Start-Ups around the world including: Wieden + Kennedy, BBDO NY, PRETTYBIRD, The Washington Post, Atlantic Media, Refinery29, Guardian News Media, BBC, IBM, Google and Lyft.
