Casting my vote for a webcast version!
yes, webcast please! 🙂
“When I was starting out as a designer all I wanted to do was sit at my Mac and do design all day and ignore everything else about the messy world of business. In a way I’m still a little like that, but somehow I got to this point in my career where I’m building my second company and spending more of my time, energy and passion on the mechanics of business than I ever have before. And it’s been incredibly fun.”
I love meeting people who have this same feeling / experience. The transition to designing businesses is a really powerful one. Wish I could be there to join the conversation.
I really wish I could be there for this. Sadly getting to NY from Cape Town by Thursday is an impossibility.
Please try make this available to people who cannot attend. Willing to make a cash bribe!
This topic has been close to my heart, ever since stepping into the field of design. Nowhere is it more important then in developing nations, such as South Africa.
Nice talk, Khoi – didn’t get to ask my question, which was ‘what are your marketing plans for the new app?’
But, perhaps more importantly, from your vague hints about what the app does, I’m wondering if it might have some application in education. We have a middle school here in NYC (and one in Chicago) and I’d be happy to introduce the app to our folks.
If you happen to have an announce list for when the app launches, please add me to it.
