As a part of the upcoming ThingWeek, Design Museum Portland is pleased to present an Internet of Things conversation event. Every season Design Museum Portland brings together experts from diverse fields along with communities inside and outside the design world to discuss complex themes in venues around Portland.

Our upcoming panel will tackle how the Internet of Things is disrupting business models, the consumer experience, and how design is driving the disruption. Each UNITE offers the opportunity to gain insight into how design guides professionals of various backgrounds to create successful collaborations and to solve real world problems.

Panel Members:
David Ewald, Chief Creative Officer, Uncorked Studios
Shashi Jain, IoT Innovation Manager, Intel
Skip Newberry, President, TAO
Malia Spencer, Tech Reporter, Portland Business Journal (Our Moderator)

This UNITE event will be held at the new Smarsh, Inc. corporate offices. With over 20,000 customers, Smarsh Inc. is the leading provider of archiving and compliance solutions for companies in regulated and litigious industries. Smarsh is headquartered in beautiful Portland, Oregon with offices worldwide.

This event is made possible through the generous support of Creative Circle. Creative Circle is a specialized staffing agency that connects innovative advertising, marketing, and interactive professionals with companies seeking talent on a full-time or freelance basis. The team is comprised of professionals from the advertising, interactive and marketing industries, giving us first-hand experience into what our clients and candidates experience.

 

ThingWeek is a week of events connecting ideas, objects, and people to shape the future of the Internet of Things.

The ability to connect everyday objects and capture data from our surroundings opens up a world of opportunity. The Internet of Things can empower us to live safer, healthier, and more productive lives by allowing us to interact with our environments in smarter, more meaningful ways.

As evolving technology continues to open new doors for design, connecting these two disciplines is essential. ThingWeek brings together Portland’s design and technology communities to explore this new frontier.

Design Museum will also host a UNITE: Youth Roundtable event, preceding the evening’s panel conversation, bringing students together to consider the Internet of Things.
