    Gape Into The Void Episode 10 - Converge with Ray Velez



    Show notes:



    In this episode we have the opportunity to speak with Ray Velez, the CTO of legendary digital agency Razorfish, and co-author of the book, "Converge: Transforming Business at the Intersection of Marketing and Technology."



    Ray's story is an interesting one as he's gone though Razorfish's numerous changes in ownership while working with clients ranging from Citibank, to Ford Motor Company, to the National Football League (NFL).



    You can check out Ray's book "CONVERGE" here.

Creative insight and commentary

Hugh MacLeod has been on my radar since the early days of his blog. I'm a long time reader and fan. His books are ideal gifts for anyone seeking to be more creative, and I view his podcast as an even more valuable gift as they include insights from people like Seth Godin, Gary Vaynerchuk, and other guests and gurus. Well worth a listen and a click of the Subscribe button!
