The INBOUND 2015 Keynote by Aziz Ansari & Eric Klinenberg

One of the finest comedians of our time, Aziz Ansari, took to the INBOUND15 stage for a fabulous keynote. Needless to say, the excitement was palpable even if you were following the event from afar. What a great day it must be in Boston! Unfortunately, no photos or videos were allowed during the keynote. However, that won’t stop us from bringing you the highlights of the ever-so-funny Aziz Ansari’s keynote.

 

Modern Romance

Aziz Ansari, recently, co-authored a book called Modern Romance. It centers on dating in the modern world and how technology has affected relationships. The audience got a little treat when Aziz read an excerpt from his book. He even brought in his friend, Eric Klinenberg, NYU sociologist and co-author of Modern Romance.

 

Online Self

Aziz Ansari and Eric Klinenberg touched on how people tend to have a different personality online and how technology enables a behavior we might find rude in the real world, but are fine with online.

 

Too Many Choices, Spoils Dating?

In today’s world, where there are dating apps galore, Aziz and Eric mentioned how easy it is to lose interest in dating one person. With people swiping left, right and center to find the perfect match, focusing on improving a single relationship becomes much more difficult.

 

We can guarantee that this keynote was hilarious, and yet so true. To sum it all Rob Cottingham provides this excellent sketchnote on the keynote. Also while you’re thinking about your own online dating profiles, be sure to check out what else is happening at INBOUND15!
