I visited Ian Keough at his single-family home in Culver City, California, in July 2018, where he took me out surfing after recording a podcast at his kitchen table.
Ian had just started Hypar1 out of his garage, "a platform for designing, generating, and sharing building systems." He's the CEO and founder of Hypar and is known as the father of Dynamo.
Last September, we recorded a conversation in a hotel room at St Joseph Street, New Orleans, with two cameras and two microphones. We didn't surf this time but got a beautiful 6.7-mile run in at sunrise along the Mississippi River with Zach Kron.
Enjoy this episode on how Hypar is creating the next-generation platform to design, generate, and share buildings and Ian's thoughts on open-source software, visual programming, authorship, monetization, and generative AI.
We'll premiere the episode on YouTube today, Tuesday, June 20, at 2 PM ET, which means you'll be able to chat with Ian and me during the episode.
We hope you can make it!
Hypar stands for hyperbolic paraboloid, a mathematical surface that resembles a saddle shape. ↩
