Aaron Koblin describes himself as half nerd/half art geek, but anyone associating those two adjectives with the old junior high put-downs better think again. It is now a well-known fact that nerds will inherit the earth—or at least a nice plot of land in Mountain View, CA. We interviewed Koblin for this episode of the Belkin Explorers Series at Google's Creative Lab in San Francisco, where he uses his brain powers to create interactive websites like The Johnny Cash Project and The Wilderness Downtown. The former was just nominated for a Grammy award and the latter is so awesomely voyeuristic that the FBI is probably real worried about their competition. Everybody: meet the next Steve Jobs. The next Steve Jobs: meet everybody.
