TechBreakfast is out to blind you with science (#sorrynotsorry).
The next “ExecBreakfast” edition of the Baltimore-born morning meetup for innovators will feature Thomas Dolby as a special guest. The 8 a.m. session is scheduled for Sept. 21 at DLA Piper’s offices in North Baltimore.
Dolby is best known for his ’80s pop hit, “She Blinded Me With Science.” In music circles, he is also a well-known session musician and producer. In the ’90s, Dolby founded Beatnik, an interactive audio startup which built an engine that eventually powered ringtones on Nokia phones, and beyond.
These days, Dolby is a professor at Johns Hopkins University. He’ll be the artistic director for the school’s Sound on Film program, which is part of Hopkins’ joint film program with MICA that is set to launch in a pair of repurposed theaters in Station North.
The last ExecBreakfast was held earlier this year with a pre-presidential candidate Martin O’Malley. Check out our coverage for a little more on what to expect from the format.
