Not just Evil Robots. This web site is mostly about the life and times of a guy (Jason Alan Snyder), that spends his career inventing and building technology. Including Luci the solar lantern and JAGTAG.

I publish and lecture about things like innovation, advertising, marketing, futurism, technology, biotech, security, social media, augmented reality, synthetic worlds and physical computing.

I am the Director of Technology for North America at Momentum Worldwide part of the McCann Worldgroup which is owned by the InterPublic Group.

The views and ideas expressed on this web site are entirely my own.

This is Luci. She is a solar light that I invented.

Humanity thrives on light. Yet, so many people live in darkness. Solar technology has the potential to illuminate the world over – on and off the grid –  with affordable, clean light. 

MPOWERD is a company I co-founded to create affordable micro power technologies. Luci is their first product. Luci can function in any environment on earth to produce brilliant light with zero emissions. The same light that empowers a poor child to study at night can empower you to think differently about energy. 

I invented Luci to be an elegant, inflatable and waterproof solar lamp – ideal for those living, working and playing off-grid in both the developed and developing world. Luci was invented to replace dirty and expensive fuel-based lighting sources and provides up to 12 hours of light when fully charged, making her the perfect partner for outdoor activities, home décor and emergency preparedness. Luci functions as both a task lamp and a lantern and has three light levels for maximum versatility.

Welcome.

evil_robot_logo_grey.jpgWhat will you find here? 

What you will find is information about me, what I do for a living, and the things I enjoy thinking about. I am really pleased to have the opportunity to share my work and thoughts with you.

What else?

The future is coming faster and faster. The growth of technology is exponential. With the exponential growth of technology comes exponential adoption. Businesses need to understand, adapt and embrace these growth and adoption cycles. Businesses pay me to help them navigate these changes.

And, nothing has changed business more than technology. If we simply consider the tools used in advertising and marketing - billboards, posters, newspapers, radio, TV, the Web…and now the mobile phone. Those businesses have endured great transformations in recent history.

Now synthetic or virtual worlds are being built and populated. Places where millions of people are engaging in new methods of social interaction and social media consumption which include loads of advertising and marketing messaging.

Businesses need help navigating these new environments. They need expert advice and counsel about these new spaces. I provide that help. I posses a deep spike in developing technology strategies. My practice areas include safety, security and privacy for digital products and services, social media, on-line communities, synthetic or virtual worlds, mobile applications and services, physical world connections, augmented reality, audience generated content, product development for digital utilities and a variety of futurism topics.

So, who am I?

My name is Jason Alan Snyder. I am a technologist, futurist, marketer and business strategist. I have spent the last fifteen plus years working in technology driven advertising, marketing and media companies. I have developed innovative strategies, products and services with the worlds largest brands, connecting their audiences to the people and things they care about. I also lecture and publish about technology innovation and the future.

That's about it. Any questions?
