Making Square Hip
 
Entrepreneur, programmer, botanist, jean designer, taxi cab enthusiast  and wanna-be mayor of New York City – Dorsey is a Jack-of-all-trades. Best known for revolutionizing communication via Twitter, Dorsey is now making waves with his one-inch-by-one-inch device called Square. “Payment is another form of communication... it’s never been designed. It’s never felt magical.” Who relates financial transactions to magic? Visionaries think differently. Join us as INFORUM gives Dorsey our 21st Century Visionary Award to find out more about the technologist who thinks differently.
