Consider This: the 2007 David H. Liu Memorial Lecture Series in Design is about to kick off at Stanford!
As usual, it is a pretty amazing roster of speakers, including Jan Chipchase, whose Future Perfect blog has been a mainstay of the metacool Cool Destinations blog roll for quite some time. I had the great fortune to hang out with Jan at a beach party at TED earlier this year, and we had a (no surprise!) really interesting conversation. Can’t wait to hear him again.
I’d also like to issue a challenge for all of you with blogs or other means of spreading the word. Over the years, attendance at the Liu Lectures has been less than one would expect given the quality of the speakers. Which is a real pity, not just because the speakers are always amazing, but also because the series is a celebration of David Liu’s love of designing things, and by showing up we pay respect.
We can change that. Let’s embark on an experiment in creating infectious action. Here’s how:
- If you have a blog or a website, please post something about the Liu lectures. Even if you aren’t located near Stanford, please do this, as the web knows no boundaries.
- Then please send a trackback to this blog post so that I can keep a count of how this spreads
- Ask your friends and readers of your blog post to do the same
Cool. See you there!
