It's Friday, which means that I get to highlight something/someone super cool. In lieu of a missed connections-related person or thing, I want to draw your attention to the amazing Daryn Strauss! Daryn is the creator of Downsized, an award winning web drama. Additionally, she created and runs Digital Chick TV, a platform for female-driven web content. I'm happy to say that Missed Connections Live is a part of Digital Chick! I'm also honored to be a fellow WGAe member with Daryn.
Last week Daryn was invited to speak at a briefing in Washington DC about Net Neutrality. She represented all of us content creators/consumers in fighting for an open internet.
Yesterday, Variety and Dealine announced the nominees for WGAe council, a prestigious position. Among them, Daryn. Go, Daryn, go!
I'm proud to consider her a colleague and highly recommend you keep your eye out for her and support her content.
Here's where you can follow her:
Keep up the great work, Daryn!
