I've been in beautiful Sunnyvale California this past week at the Yahoo! Design Expo showing Experimental Devices for Performance. The first day of the Expo groups from all over the world showed in the Tent on the Yahoo Sunnyvale Campus. Most of the projects got a nice little write up in Tech Crunch.
Although I didn't get to present (keynote styles) on the second day along with most of the other participants, the speakers and workshops during the rest of the week more than made up for it.
Among the speakers were Brewster Kahle of the Internet Archive, Tom Kelly of IDEO, Anthony Dunne of Dunne and Raby, and Bob Brunner of Pentagram.
The most exciting thing I saw at the 4,000 + employeed company, was not on the Sunnyvale Campus, but in the small warehouse in downtown San Francisco. A small handful of people my age proposing "fringier"projects and executing them on Yahoo's dime.
Artist in residence? Sounds tempting.
