Tiffany Shlain, vibrant and charming with her bright lipstick and snazzy fedoras, has catapulted her series, The Future Starts Here, to the top of AOL On Originals‘ list of most-watched shows.

November 19, 2013 TechCrunch TV- Keen On…The Future Starts Here: Why AOL Might be the New Hollywood Studio
AOL’s commitment to Shlain’s work is encouraging. They are, she told me, the new studio. And Shlain – with her ability to squeeze big ideas into short form video – represents the future of documentary filmmaking. As the founder of the Webby Awards, Shlain imported Hollywood to Silicon Valley. But in her current role as a video chronicler of digital culture, Shlain is exporting both Silicon Valley’s message and its medium back to the Hollywood studios.
November 17, 2013 Fast Company- Instead of a Digital Detox, Why Not Take a Weekly Tech Shabbat?
In the past few years, the digital detox–a break for a fixed amount of time from cell phones, laptops, and all the other electronics that hog our brain capacity–has become trendy. There are digital detox summer camps, evening parties, and pricey retreats. But shelling out $400 for a weekend of disconnecting with other tech addicts is a bit extreme. Instead, why not try just taking a 24-hour break from electronics once a week?
November 14, 2013 Sundance Institute- The Future Starts Here: Tiffany Shlain on “Cloud Filmmaking”
It was a dream to have the world premiere of my first feature documentary at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. The film was Connected, and one of the ideas I explored at the climax of the story was what I called “The Participatory Revolution,” the potential of so many people around the world having cameras in their hands at all times, connected to the Internet. So after the premiere, my team and I had an idea that we call “Cloud Filmmaking,” where we’d make a film together with all those people around the world. Over the last three years, we’ve released four of these “Cloud Films,” all putting the idea of the Participatory Revolution into action.

Tiffany Shlain has a lot of ideas.
But until fairly recently, the 43-year-old founder of the Webby Awards was reluctant to own them on film. No longer — in her new web-series, “The Future Starts Here,” which premiered October 11 on AOL, Shlain is loud, proud and vocal about thoughts ranging from 21st century motherhood, to acceptable online etiquette (hint: Emails masquerading as the great American novel are a no-no.)
