New issue of Connected is out today!

October 21, 2014 | By | No Comments

Connected 2 Cover

We just published a second issue of our (roughly) semi-annual printed magazine Connected.

In this issue of Connected, we focus on a subset of the Internet of Things (IoT): Wearables. Between fitness trackers, health devices and smart watches, there is a lot happening in the space that warrants a closer look at the devices, services and players, as well as at the larger implications on our lives and the industry.

This printed 16-page newspaper features contributions by Josh Clark, Neil Clavin, Gwen Elliot, Raph Crouan, Liza Kindred, Adrian McEwen, Mark Simpkins, Scott Smith, Ashley Tyler, as well as Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino, Ana Bradley and Peter Bihr. It was designed by Tristam Sparks.

You can order your copies here.

A new team for UIKonf!

October 14, 2014 | By |

A few weeks ago, my UIKonf partners Chris, Matt & I decided that we wouldn’t have the bandwidth to run & grow the event in 2015. I’m super happy that our blog post about our plans found the exact right response – a new team stepped forward to take over from us. We couldn’t be happier as this team is excellent, knows the event series inside out and just, well, gets it. We’ll all stay around to help out of course as we wouldn’t want to just drop out of the whole thing. It’s too good and too much fun to abandon the event, we just can’t be the leads.

Engin, Maxim & Sabine, you rock! This is going to be great!

More updates as soon, straight from the new team, at uikonf.com

Is there going to be a UIKonf 2015?

September 19, 2014 | By |

portfolio_uikonfBig news regarding UIKonf: We’re looking for a team or company to take it over from us. Crossposting this from the UIKonf blog:

It’s hard to believe that UIKonf happened just a few months ago. Thinking back to it, we’re still thrilled.
However, the summer break is over now and it’s time to look ahead. When we started talking about plans for next year one thing became increasingly obvious: Each of us will have plenty on their plates. So much so, that we don’t think we will find the time to run another full-blown UIKonf in 2015. In order to make it live up to our standards, we all would need to invest more time than we have during the next nine or ten months. Read More
