    2756

    "A Timothy Leary of the Viral Video Age" was how The Atlantic described television personality, filmmaker and techno-philosopher Silva. From 2005 to 2011, Venezuela-born Silva was a presenter on Current TV, the Emmy-winning, independent cable network started by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, where he hosted, wrote and produced more than 100 hours of original content. A self-professed wonder junkie, Silva recently launched a series of noncommercial micro-documentaries exploring the co-evolution of human and technology that ?play like movie trailers for ideas, according to The Atlantic. Silva has been featured in The Atlantic, The Economist, Vanity Fair, Forbes and Wired, IO9, among many others.
