The Innovator 25: Liv Buli
Because when Spin magazine ran a piece saying people were tired of Lady Gaga based on her declining search popularity — Buli compared this data against the singer’s Facebook, Twitter, VEVO and Instagram activity to conclude on Next Big Sound’s blog that Lady Gaga is, in fact, not in danger of plunging into oblivion. For bridging the gap between smart journalism, engineers and data scientists to pen some of the music industry’s most compelling pieces. And for embarking on every story with this in mind — “what question can this data answer right now?”

Innovation happens when teams and individuals are willing to fail. This allows them to take risks and explore unchartered territory, which can lead to content that is highly engaging and successful, and reaches a large audience organically.

The Portugal. The Man/ Smithsonian Endangered Song collaboration. A campaign to highlight the plight of the Sumatran Tiger, by recording a track to vinyl and allowing it to go extint unless it is digitally reproduced.

Many teams at DigitasLBi are forward-thinking in their use of data and analytics.

How do you get inspired?
I like to hike, and give myself the time and solitude to think through questions and ideas in my head.
Advice for people seeking to bring new ideas, ways of doing things to their organizations?
Do not be afraid to fail, and seek inspiration away from your desk.
In your opinion, what’s the most innovative place in the world? This could be a city, a venue, a neighborhood, etc.
New York City. That is why I came here.
What’s your favorite time of day and why?
The morning. It is peaceful and I am at my most efficient.
