About Rob

Robert L. Lindstrom, president of C60 Communications, has worked hard all his life to stay out of The Box, with varying degrees of success. The themes of interconnection, interdependence and communication thread their way throughout his personal and professional life.

Rob is an award-winning journalist, author, photographer and editor whose work has appeared in the pages of the Los Angeles Times, Forbes, Business Week, Fortune, California Business, Adweek, Westways, and numerous other publications.

In the mid 1990s, he was among the first to introduce the business world to the emerging importance of rich-media-enabled communication in his best-selling book, The Business Week Guide to Multimedia Presentations. His follow-up web book, Being Visual, explores the technology-driven rebirth of visual language that is changing how we connect and communicate in both business and society.

Rob, whose wide-ranging educational background includes a Masters degree from the University of California, is former editor-in-chief of two magazines in the field of multimedia communications.

Connecting his fascination for the transformational influence of technology, his passion for hiking and his devotion to fatherhood, in 1998, Rob co-founded the Digital Exploration Society (DEX), a non-profit organization that pioneers the use of mobile multimedia technology for education, personal development and environmental awareness. Rob serves as executive director of DEX, which launches "digital expeditions" with middle school students to parklands and other nature areas around the country. DEX equips young digital explorers with the latest wireless and mobile technologies as they pioneer their own future by exploring the interconnections and interdependencies between people, the tools we create and planet we inhabit.

In his work and all other aspects of the sphere of his life, Rob expresses and pursues his deeply held belief that, as individuals and societies, being understood is our greatest challenge and understanding others is our one true solution.

Rob's writing and editing awards include the prestigious Los Angeles Press Club Award for Business Reporting, the New York Art Director's Club award for feature design and the Corwin Award for Drama. In two consecutive years, the Los Angeles Business Journal named him one of "The Rising Stars in High Technology".
