For 20 years, Dan Saffer has been designing everything from apps to robots and everything in between. Dan is the author of four acclaimed books on design, including his latest, Microinteractions, which Scott Berkun called “the best design book in years.” He speaks and teaches workshops on design around the world. In 2008, he coined the term “topless meeting” (for a meeting without laptops), which was a finalist for Oxford Dictionary’s word of the year and Time magazine’s #10 buzzword of 2008.
