Head of Digital & Mobilization, Greenpeace International
Technology is subversive. I've been an activist with Greenpeace for 30 years. In that time, I've delayed a nuclear weapons test, hung a banner on the Statue of Liberty, sailed on four oceans, lived in six countries, saved whales and learned to pilot a hot air balloon for the cause. I was setting up email communications with alligator clips in Moscow in the mid 1980s, online activism websites in the early 90s, and jumped all over twitter when it debuted at SXSW in 2006. As an early adopter, I learned how to spot technologies Greenpeace might bend to activist purposes and organizational needs, and developed some skills in getting them adopted. Follow me @brianfit

Executive Coach & CEO (Shaman for the Digital Tribe), Dark Matter Consulting
I am an Executive and Relationship Coach. I help my clients take life & career from good to great to Extraordinary in less than three years. “Extraordinary” means recapturing the Big Dreams they had as kids, making it work in the "real world" so that life is passionate and rewarding (materially, spiritually, emotionally). We focus on mission, leadership, courage, productivity, spirituality, conflict, and relationships. My ideal client is 40 - 45, successful, innovative, but perhaps starting to burn out on achieving old dreams. Perhaps they are ready for their next professional step. Perhaps they’re overwhelmed by daily BS and want to feel alive again, like they are making a difference. Perhaps they want to develop a more authentic vision of their masculinity or femininity and show up differently in their marriage or career. I see myself as the Shaman for the Digital Tribe Arthur had Merlin
