Brian Pichman is the Director of Strategic Innovation at the Evolve Project. He speaks a lot about innovative technology as a presenter and loves collaborating with both libraries and companies. He is dedicated to bring libraries into the future using cost effective measures and strategies. Much of Evolve’s work includes bridging the digital divide, breaking away from "traditional library views", becoming trend setters and finding or building innovative works geared towards interaction and collaboration. He has also been working with start-up companies across the country, promoting libraries and encouraging people to work closer with libraries in developing new ideas and concepts.
