Context is everything

Designing Sustainable Mobility is an event recently held at Art Center in Southern California. In Northern California (i.e., Silicon Valley) an design-y event about mobility (sustainable or otherwise), is going to be about wireless communications (i.e. cell phone stuff). In Southern California, it’s about cars.

Although, now that I think of it, a conference about sustainability and wireless mobility would be interesting, since I don’t ever hear of the two things put together.

Goin’ to the O.C.

I’ll be in Orange County for a few days during the second week of December. I doubt that the people we’ll be interviewing will like our young friends above.

I’m looking forward to the trip; I’ve been in L.A. many times, but have not seen a ton of the surrounding areas. I drove all the way to San Diego about 4 years ago, and was in Irvine for a presentation a couple of years ago, but that’s about it.
