Tinsley Gaylean is the Director of The Global Literacy Project (globallit.org) and is a Research Affiliate at the MIT Media Lab. He serves on the Steering Committee of The Dalai Lama Center For Ethics and Transformative Values. Tinsley’s education has spanned both art and technology — long before it was considered a good career move. He was the first person to receive his Ph.D. from the Interactive Cinema group at the MIT Media Lab, where he worked to evolve cinematic storytelling techniques for use in interactive experiences. In 1996, Tinsley founded Nearlife, leveraging the power of new technologies for corporate clients. Must of this work involved Location Based Entertainment (LBE) and museum exhibits. Examples of this work are the large scale interactive table and touch walls for: MoMA, Chicago Mercantile Exchange, Liberty Science Center, Georgia Aquarium, and the new a interactive experience for Cirque Du Soleil’s Beatles Revolution Lounge. Tinsley is an inventor and holds a number of patents, several of which have been used in the development of new children’s television projects. This work has included broadcast and online projects for Disney, Warner Brothers, and Discovery Kids. The work for Discovery Kids received an Emmy nomination. His unique mix of skills and experience allows him to develop unique concepts and experiences, often never done before, while also delivering the technical means by which these ideas can become a reality.
