Ken Braun of Lounge Lizard joins the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences
Lounge Lizard is proud to announce that Ken Braun, the President of Lounge Lizard, got accepted to The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences as an Associate Member this month.
The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences is a group that was founded in 1998 with an idea of helping drive the creativity, technical progress and professional progress of both the internet and interactive media.
At the IADAS they select the nominees and winners of The Webby Awards and The Lovie Awards. Both awards are the leading honors for websites and individual achievement in creativity and technology on an international level. They recognize excellence, best practices and people who are pushing the standards of web development continually higher.
Membership in IADAS is currently by invitation only and is limited to those individuals who have catalyzed great achievements on the Internet, demonstrated extraordinary talent in a traditional medium, or who possess in-depth knowledge of new media and comprehensive familiarity with a broad range of sites within a category. As such Lounge Lizard is extremely proud that Ken is to be recognized by IADAS as a person to be included with some of the outstanding names already a part of the group.
Executive Academy Members of IADAS include people such as David Bowie, Richard Branson, Vinton Cerf, Arianna Huffington, Rob Glaser, and Matt Groeing. Along with former award winners, other associate members include writers and editors from publications such as The New York Times, Wired, Forbes, Vibe, and WallPaper. Ken is thrilled to be associated with this dynamic and exclusive organization.
The Webby Awards are in their 17th year, with the most recent award show being hosted by Patton Oswalt and featuring Kevin Spacey, Jerry Seinfeld and many more. This last year they received over 10,000 entries from over 60 countries. While these awards are worldwide, the Lovie Awards are celebrating the most resonant and pertinent stories in Europe.
Ken is humbled to be included with the many luminaries of our industry within the IADAS and always strives to push the envelope of web development and internet artistry to new highs as he helps each one of Lounge Lizards’ clients achieve their own personal success in the world.
