Zendesk x Pop-Up Magazine present: The Digital Tipping Point is a one-of-a-kind experiential event produced in collaboration with Pop-Up Magazine that explores The Digital Tipping Point through live stories and performances by writers, producers, and artists.

  • Emmy-award winning audio producer Stephanie Foo with a story about how technology can connect customers and businesses in surprising and sometimes hilarious ways.
  • Dan Engber, a writer and editor at The Atlantic, examines how the unassuming progress bar has changed our feelings not just about time and productivity, but about ourselves.
  • Artist Christine Sun Kim reminds us that technology doesn’t work the same way for everyone, and offers some suggestions for improvement.
  • See how Kathleen Barrett and her team at Vimeo use customer service to level the playing field and help art and creativity thrive in the world.
  • Award-winning writer Cord Jefferson describes how his love/hate relationship with technology was turned upside down by a life-changing event.
  • Live Q&A with some of our story narrators, Zendesk customers and executives, and Pop-Up producers, including: Vivek Ravindranath from WhatsApp, Kathy Dalpes, VP of Customer Advocacy at Zendesk, Jully Kim, Sr. Dir. of Engineering at Zendesk, and Teresa Haun, Dir. of Product Marketing at Zendesk.
