Join us for presentations, studio tours and parties on our first roadshow to awesome Atlanta, Georgia.
Bruce provides strategy, vision, and leadership for Second Story Interactive Studio, a company known for its award winning work for PBS, the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian, Gettysberg Foundation and many others. Before joining Second Story, Bruce was Director of Technology at the Denver Art Museum, overseeing the museum's technology including award winning new media and gallery experiences, infrastructure, and business systems.
Bruce's session on “The Permeability of Place: Looking into the Future of Interactive Media” will challenge the basic assumptions held about interactive media. How does the rapid evolution of interfaces and technology require new ways of looking at user experiences and using multiple senses? How can technologies developed for the web apply elsewhere as well? How can we design for the transportability of data and content?
According to Bruce, "sharing is a fact of life." All secrets shall be revealed.
If you're an Early Bird, you may be one of the lucky attendees who will receive a copy of Nathan Shedroff's thought provoking and inspirational book on sustainability, "Design is the Problem". It's easy, just register by Oct. 26th to join in the drawings.
John Thackara, creator of the Doors of Perception conference says that "If a sustainable world is to be less about stuff, and more about people, what should designers design? Nathan Shedroff challenges designers to focus on what the experience of a sustainable world can be like. I hope every designer will read this book."
Attendees who register for both days of the conference will enjoy an afternoon of sessions and studio tours at an awesome group of companies...this is a fantastic opportunity to learn how award-winning companies are building successful businesses for web and mobile.
