Ryan Mast wears many hats—filmmaker through Unitheo, programmer with AMQ Software, and student at Millersville University.

In this can’t-miss episode, the Lancast’s Daniel Klotz sits down with Ryan Mast, a Lancaster technologist who studies at Millersville University, programs in Flash for AMQ Software, and produces music and performance videos under Unitheo.

It’s the most intellectual discussion to date on this podcast. Daniel and Ryan address what it means when what we do online increasingly matters to our lives in the physical world. What does the future hold for us as users of technology and as human beings? How do we remain civilized in a heavily augmented reality?

In the second half of the episode, Ryan brings illumination to the question of why it’s so hard to put a finger on the nature of the dynamic between Millersville and Lancaster.
