Pundit, policy wonk and new media trailblazer, Arthur Lindsey III has been talking politics for more than a decade. With a background in technology and a passion for politics, Art has made it possible to combine the two into a perfect blend of knowledge and opinion, which he is never shy to share.
Acquiring a degree in broadcasting in 1997, Art foresaw the coming of Web 2.0, and co-created one of the first podcasting platforms, Blipmedia. Since then he has been delivering quality technological wisdom and political punditry on the web to thousands of listeners and subscribers. He began his Internet broadcasting career in 2000 with a Canadian outlet named Rantmedia, and within a decade, he was co-hosting “Rizwords” – a happy combination of both politics and new technology – with his creative partner Mark Hopkins, and garnering over 100,000 downloads every month. Other podcasts have come and gone over the years, including the popular “Out In Right Field,” an irreverent mix of conservative thought and pop culture.
His work with Arts + Labs combines policy writing with tech consulting, from a user perspective. Net neutrality, cloud computing and intellectual property rights are just some of the areas Art covers.
