Your Bio


@Mouselink is the internet handle of the New-York-based author, teacher, public speaker and artist, Matteo Wyllyamz. Matteo is interested in new media, visual communication, “technorealism,” and future trends forecasting. He writes and speaks about the ways in which emerging technologies impact our society, communities, businesses, schools, and us as individuals.

This approach is sometimes referred to as “futurism.”

Matteo specializes in bringing the details of these emerging technologies to those who may not already be paying attention, and creates visual and spoken-word presentations on these same topics. Matteo likes to tell stories within the framework of the “sociotechnology.” Many of these stories are global. Some are local. All are human.

Matteo Wyllyamz has spoken at Ithaca College, Cornell Cooperative Extension, TC3, NYCC, and the AFCU “Business Cents” program. He has also taught for CCU in Denver, Colorado Free University, Productivity Point, and the US Department of Defense. Most recently, he presented at the “social media rock conference,” Tweetstock, in Brantford, Ontario, Canada, and at the 140 Characters Conference in New York City.

In 2013, Matteo became a Shorty Awards finalist for excellence in social media in the category of science. In 2012, he was selected as one of 30 finalists for the PrixMobile global art prize for his creative work in ‘phoneography.’ Matteo is a magna cum laude graduate of the professional writing program at Metropolitan State College of Denver.

Matteo describes himself as a “Beatnik super-human, disguised as geek, loitering at the intersection of Art and Science.” Connect with him to arrange an appearance on radio, TV, and new media, or to organize a public presentation, such as a workshop, seminar, class, panel, speech, or spoken word performance.
