TriBeCa's Mighty Merge @ Doha
(Please click on the art to check out TriBeCa's Arabian nights)
Who knows if some day mighty Doha TriBeCa will replace the United Nations and Madison Avenue as the logical setting for progress in communicating with each other in the 21st century? In our new era of blackberries, trios, and sweaty palms, last month's Doha TriBeCa was reassuringly simple.
Forgive us for being a little eclectic. Perhaps it was the heat, or the sun, or the moon... or the stars, who all came out; during the day and at night.
Who called? Take a message..... The Doha's medium was that message. The energy simply could not sit still. Doha TriBeCa advanced both the unification and commercialization of the business of ideas and relationships in the next era of the 21st century.
It was a virtual and physical place that connected art with commerce. Normally sitting smack dab in the middle between Wall Street & the West Village, Marty & Bobby moved shifted the geographic and political landscape over a little last month to the Middle... East! You might say that doha TriBeCa became an Entertainment Mecca.
Need a wake-up call? Spend a few worth-the-time hours to review this years' Doha TriBeCa site to see how the most talented and inspired communicators burned their ideas onto video and film. In the age of YouTube, IM, online dating services and Desperate Housewives, we no-had-to be cents-less; but rich, in spirit.
Food for thought, for sure. Doha TriBeCa became the communications platform for serious and some not-so serious film and video messengers. It was also fun, a key ingredient. It attracted the "beautiful people" and the people who have something beautiful and meaningful to say.
By the looks of things, few would argue that the UN and MadAve could use a little competition.
