Brian Mcallister, Roadtrip Nation

OK so ah my name's Brian McAllister and I'm a co-founder of a group called Roadtrip Nation and basically Roadtrip Nation started out over some frustration. We graduated from university and we didn't know exactly what we wanted to do with our lives, But we didn't identify with becoming lawyers, doctors or accountants and so we decided to take a road trip across the United States and talk to different people from all walks of life to simply ask them how did you get to where you are today? And hopes of this entire journey was to get a better understanding of what we want to do with our own lives. Erm, to date we've been putting hundreds of other students on road trips. Erm, we've started more or less a movement across the United States about students going out and talking to people and asking them some questions. And it's really about exposure. So Roadtrip Nation now has an (inter que, er) interview archive of hundreds of interviews from different people, who have followed their passions in life. And simply its what we're here today at this conference is really to look at this space, um an open space, of information exchange and sharing data across different mechanisms and across borders. So, that whole generation that's perhaps younger than us has a better sense of who they are and how to follow their own passions in life. Erm, and to be exposed to all these opportunities and what we feel passionate about is that exposure really connects to relevancy and relevancy is all about this retention in school and academia. And you know, we have a better sense of who we are and what purpose there is to the careers that we choose. So, that's a little bit about Roadtrip Nation.
