Robin Raskin is a veteran in the technology media business. She’s been reporting on tech products that have been changing people’s lives over the last 30 years. Some of the stops on her tech media career include USA Today, PC Magazine, Family PC Magazine and being one of the founding journalists with Yahoo Tech.
In 2007 she created an event called The Sandbox Summit: A Playdate With Technology at CES. Nearly a decade later, her events, stories, summits and pitch contests encompass the body of work, of the company she founded, Living In Digital Times. It’s one of those, the name means exactly what it says.
What people have loved about Raskin’s journalistic style is that she has always simplified technology for the people. When you come to any tech show, especially big ones like CES or IFA, most of the exhibiting company representatives are used to talking to people with a high understanding of technology. They use a lot of tech words and buzz phrases that typically go over the normal consumer’s head.
Raskin has always had a way of making technology easier for people to understand. She’s wants to highlight technology that will truly impact people’s lives and how. Companies that exhibit at any of Living in Digital Times Events benefit not only benefit from the people or eyeballs they get, but also from Raskin’s team’s experience in crafting stories so people understand the technology.
It’s great for a company to say they want “to change the world” but Raskin and Living In Digital Times are going to help those companies explain how they are going to change the world, and more importantly, make sure that normal everyday people understand that.
That event 10 years ago has grown into several events, many of which happen within the annual CES show in Las Vegas.
- Baby Tech Summit
- Beauty Tech Summit
- Cybersecurity Summit
- Digital Health Summit
- Digital Money Forum (Crypto)
- Family Tech Summit
- Sports and Fitness Tech
- Wearable Tech Summit
Raskin has always had an affinity to technology that helps and benefits kids and families. Many of her events cater to that segment of the population. So it was only natural for her and our 10 year old edtech reporter Tatum F, to hit it off at CES 2018. Although Tatum has been covering conferences since she was 6, this year she was the youngest person ever cleared as media for CES and Raskin immediately recognized that.
Tatum is an aspiring journalist who hopes to continue to write about products that are impacting the lives of her peers and people. When she started doing videos and interviews, she wanted to go well beyond just unboxing the latest toy she got at Target or Toys R Us, and that hit right home for Raskin.
In the interview video above Raskin points out to Tatum just the mere fact that she’s a tech based tech journalist at 10 years old, epitomizes the purpose of Livingindigitaltimes, because Tatum is living in digital times.
