Di-Ann Eisnor » VP Platforms & Partnerships, Community Geographer, Waze

Session: SPOTLIGHT KEYNOTE: THE MASTERS OF “MOBILE FIRST”

Di-Ann Eisnor, VP Platform and Partnerships, runs US operations and is crafting the cartography of “live mapping” for Israeli crowd-sourced navigation and real-time traffic start-up, Waze.  Di-Ann is a neogeography pioneer and serial entrepreneur employing all means to increase the world’s citizen mappers. Prior to Waze, Di-Ann founded, managed and sold her company, Eisnor Interactive, to Omnicom.

Di-Ann lives in Palo Alto, by way of Portland, Boston, New York City, and Amsterdam. Since moving to the Northwest, she has pressed apples, canned pickles and peppers (incorrectly), pressed wine, increased werewolf play and raised chickens.

In addition to being active in a few non-profits and showing her psychogeography-inspired art in the US and Europe, her entrepreneurial passions lie with community development, urban exploration, community cartography and social mapping – in fact, she believes social mapping to be a critical tool for cultural diplomacy.

Di-Ann functions as both Chairman of Platial, The People’s Atlas, and as Community Geographer at Waze.
