Social data is exploding and scientists, like Hilary, are gaining new insights into human behavior. But how can we use this data to create something meaningful? How can all of us - scientists, developers, artists, and other innovators - work together to build tools or products that make the world more productive, interesting and beautiful?

Hilary collaborated with an artist named Marc Andre Robinson to create a Smart, Social Umbrella:
Hilary is a computer scientist with a background in machine learning, data mining, and web applications. She is the scientist at Bit.ly, where she learns things from vast amounts of data. She is widely published and regularly speaks at academic and industry conferences, and recently realized her dream of delivering a talk on algorithms while drinking a dry ice martini. She is an enthusiastic developer and often releases code on her personal site, www.hilarymason.com. She has discovered two new species, loves to bake cookies, and asks way too many questions.
