A one-on-one conversation between Lisa Gansky, co-founder of oFoto (now Kodak Gallery) and GNN (now part of AOL), as well as author of The Mesh, and Matt Marshall, Executive Producer of DEMO.
As CEO, co-founder and chairman of Ofoto, Lisa Gansky drew on her entrepreneurial spirit and experience developing global web services. Gansky and the team worked to develop Ofoto into a world-class consumer services offering which she left once Kodak Gallery reached over 45M customers in 2005.
In addition to her roles at Ofoto and Eastman Kodak, she was a Co-founder and CEO of GNN, the first commercial website, acquired by AOL in 1995. Gansky has been an investor and board member of more than twenty internet and mobile services companies.
Lisa Gansky, web entrepreneur and author of The Mesh, discusses the recent trend of "pop-up" businesses, like restaurants and other retailers that operate without a fixed location.
She explains the rise of social networking has facilitated the movement, but also suggests that tools like Twitter and Groupon are simply "first generations of the cocktail between social, mobile, and the web."
