The Nantucket Project is one of the world’s great gatherings, each year hosting pre-eminent thinkers, leaders and innovators in a wide range of fields.
Using Hologram USA patented technology, The Nantucket Project “beamed” in Julian Assange from Julian’s hideout inside of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London to Nantucket, a tiny island off the coast of Massachusetts on 9/28/14. For 90-minutes, Assange opened the floor to Q&A and was interviewed in real time by an interviewer who was actually on stage.
Within minutes of Assange’s hologram materializing on stage, #AssangeHologram became a worldwide Twitter trending topic and quickly made it to some of the biggest news outlets including Time Magazine, Vanity Fair, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. A clip of the interview was even featured on The Tonight Show the following evening.
