In the startup world, we’re always short on resources. In the corporate world, we look far enough into the future to plan and strategize the quarter and the year. But what about the future? In 10 years? In 30 years? In 50 years? Will the products and companies that we’re passionately building still exist? What impacts are they making in the world?
“While we can’t know exactly what the future will bring, we can acknowledge and embrace unpredictability,” declared Future-Friendly Web (http://futurefriendlyweb.com/). And we can extend the future-friendliness to hardware, a market where products are replaced and updated with remarkable frequency. Materials and processes continue to evolve, but visualizing the future where our products exist may nonetheless make us take a necessary step back to examine why we do what we do.
The half-day (3-4 hours) workshop will include:
Kuan Luo is a product designer at Etsy and director of design at grandst.
