In October 2015, Mitya, Blinky Bill, and Eva Salina joined together in Maine for the PopTech conference, which every year gathers 600 diverse thinkers and doers from around the world to share ideas and projects that are shaping our future. The trio was brought together for this special reunion by OneBeat Director Chris Marianetti, who has been a featured speaker at the PopTech conference for two years.
