At a previous startup company, I was fortunate enough to meet a guy named Bran Ferren.

Bran Ferren is a former Walt Disney Imagineer.
His company Applied Minds is a creative think tank shop.

Bran Ferren and Danny Hillis are renaissance men.

MSNBC’s Michael Eisner interviewed Bran Ferren yesterday.
