Ep. 9 - Vinli w/ EVP of Experience, Daniel Hall and Jordan Bryant on the Mobile First Podcast powered by Emerge Interactive
Daniel is a designer with nine years of professional experience, focused on creating memorable, cutting edge web experiences. Daniel has worked in print and web for both product companies as well as in client services— serving such clients as ID90T, The National Geographic Society, Starbucks, Freeman, ComData, Nintendo, and Funimation. He is currently Vinli’s EVP of Experience, leading all design and front-end development for the connected car company. Daniel is responsible for ensuring a consistent experience across the entire Vinli ecosystem.
Here are the highlights of our conversation with our guest:
Getting to know Daniel more from his passion for technology and products up to their interesting version of pillow talk.
How a pirated copy of Dreamweaver and Photoshop and the necessity of promoting a band led and inspired Daniel to pursue web design and development at the age of 14.
The reasons on what drove him to transition from client services to the world of product and the challenges — such as safety and the phase of how infrastructure moves together with ideas — that he has encountered now that he is in product design and how these obstacles had helped him grow.
Daniel expounds on why it’s taking so long for tech and infrastructure to advance to allow the speed of adoption and gives examples such as its application in the auto industry.
The biggest changes he has experienced so far which opened up the way he thinks about mobile including the growing consumer demands for applications for their car and the fact that the shift towards digital is now much faster than anyone would expect.
The new approaches in technology that he anticipates will come next for mobile and automotive such as radical advances in automobile apps, connectivity in cars, transparency from automakers and connection of cars to outside sources for data gathering.
Rapid Fire Questions
What is your definition of innovation?
Doing significant things that no one thinks they need.
Would you put more emphasis on the idea or the execution? How would you weigh each of them and why?
Act from thought should quickly follow. Ideas are great and great ideas are even better but you are not going to know if it’s a great idea until you try to do it. The best way to do it is just try it and try it the best way you can. 40% Idea, 60% execution.
What is your biggest learning lesson on your journey so far?
The first idea is probably not the best one. If you think you have a great idea, there’s probably a better one. Keep working on it and don’t be afraid of failing.
What is your favorite business book?

What is your favorite app and why?
What is the coolest thing that you are working on right now that you want everyone to know about?
First is our connective service shop launch, which will change the way people get their cars serviced.
Second is our connective dealership program which is such a shift from the way that car dealerships manage their inventory and how customers buy and own cars.

July 29, 2016 by BOB BOILEN • For Lucy Dacus, a 21-year-old with a warm and deep voice, singing comes as naturally as talking. As an adopted child in Richmond, Va., she was raised by a piano-playing mother; now, she writes songs that can be thoughtful, playful and powerful, with tremendous arrangements from guitarist Jacob Blizard.
Dacus and Blizard have been working together since Blizard asked her to be part of a college project he was working on; now, on the strength of her current album No Burden, they’ve just signed to Matador Records. So consider this Tiny Desk concert a taste of the talent we’ll be celebrating for years to come.

Watching Ben Folds perform his songs on piano at the Tiny Desk, there seems to be a direct line between thought and expression, except perhaps when he stumbles or forgets a line or two. Folds has a knack for plainspoken, smartly crafted words that sometimes sting and always seem to speak the truth — like these words from "Phone In A Pool":
"Seems what’s been good for the music Hasn’t always been so good for the life"
At the Tiny Desk, Folds opened with three sharp songs from his most recent album So There, a collaboration with six musicians who straddle the line between pop and classical music; they’re known as the yMusic Ensemble. When he finished those tunes, he asked the crowd for requests, at which point he banged out two favorites on piano: "Emaline," which dates back to the ’80s, and a foot-stomper from his second album with Ben Folds Five, "One Angry Dwarf And 200 Solemn Faces." It’s a memorable performance recounting memorable moments from second grade and beyond, as simple and direct as its closing line: "Kiss my ass."

October 4, 2016 by BOB BOILEN • We’ve never done a Tiny Desk Concert that wasn’t behind my desk at NPR. But when the White House called and said they were putting on an event called South by South Lawn, a day-long festival filled with innovators and creators from the worlds of technology and art, including music, we jumped at the chance to get involved. We chose Common as the performer and the White House library as the space.
This Tiny Desk Concert was a convergence of art and soul, mixing politics with heart. Common’s choice of songs dealt with incarceration as the new slavery, imagined a time where women rule the world and honored the man he looked up to all his life, his father. For this occasion Common put together a special six-piece band of close friends that includes the great Robert Glasper, with his eloquent and delicate touch, on keyboards and Derrick Hodge, whose music spans from hip-hop to folk and has made a big imprint on the world of jazz, on bass. Common also asked his longtime friend and collaborator Bilal to sing on two songs. The performance includes three brand new songs, along with one classic, "I Used To Love H.E.R."
Common was born on Chicago’s South Side and grew up in President Obama’s city. His rap career began in the early 1990s, bac…
