Watch and listen to my highlights from the 2017 Facebook F8 event.
I have a focused chat about the event these three themes:
AI through Camera.
Facebook enables developers to use AR Studio now to power Facebook Camera and Live interactions with AI tools. Key areas are: Information, Digital Objects, and Enhancement
VR where you want to be.
VR team debuted Spaces for Oculus enabling virtual travel, selfies, and social into the virtual environment. It’s incredibly fun and infinitely creative
Connecting the Enterprise Today
Facebook Workplace moves quietly from beta groups to a robust enterprise-ready collaboration platform to connect your company and partners.
My recap of Facebook F8 2015
The key message was Facebook Everywhere and expanding the surfaces to share.
I’ve attended all F8 events except for year 1. It was a a great look back today on the past 10 years of the product roadmap. I’m so impressed with the product team and massive focus they have had over the past two years.
I pulled some of the key moments of the day in this collection of posts. I’ll sort it out into actual thoughts later.

I am a Bay Area native and now a new New Yorker. In the interim, I earned my stripes in Atlanta and a few boomerang gigs in San Francisco. I have observed and respect the uninhibited spirit of the Bay Area. Ideas born here, do not let obstacles get in the way. Atlanta hustle has a fiercely independent flow and persistence that shapes ideas born in the South. New York is on an entirely different level of hustle – it is outcomes focused, it is serious, ideas from here are purposeful.
It’s 6 PM in San Francisco and rush hour has passed and offices are empty.
It’s 9 PM in New York and the second shift of the grind is getting started.
Sustainable teams need a balance of approaches and resources to get the job done. I am glad to be working in dual mode this week – management and East Coast hustle in the morning and West Coast inspiration afternoons.
