Real Technology to Remember Real Experiences

In episode 5, Paul Taylor from allthingsnew.tech speaks with Andrew Laffoon, CEO and Co-Founder of Mixbook. Their conversation spans several topics around the powerful theology of images, remembering, and memorials. Mixbook allows customers to create a real physical memento to capture, celebrate, and remember an experience. Paul and Andrew talk about how this desire to remember, not just as individuals, but in community has deep resonance through the Old Testament Scriptures. Images are powerful tools, but they can also be dangerous. Listen in on how technology can be used to activate the power of images while protecting against some of the danger.
