Toshiba’s Eddie Temistokle, Senior Corporate Communications Manager, “Ever since we launched Toshiba Vision in Times Square in 2008, we have looked for innovative content to fill the screen. We’re especially pleased that this program not only utilizes the Times Square screen so effectively, but ties in with the online community we are fostering through our expanding Toshiba Innovation Facebook page. This allows everyone, no matter where they live, to share in Toshiba’s commitment to promote the wonders of science and innovation. And who better than Bill Nye to partner with to help spark people’s interest in Science?”
Bill Nye the Science Guy, Executive Director of The Planetary Society, noted: “One of the things I have always loved about science is that with every new answer, there are always many more questions. The beauty and joy of science is in the constant search for understanding. With Consider the Following On Toshiba Vision, I’m looking forward to really having a dialogue with everyday people curious about the world around them.
