Fire On The Bay is 5 years old in October.
I am working with Onward Search for a special Design focused event to celebrate.
Thank you all who have been attending since October 2007!
A whole lot has happened since then but it has been the same 3 guys on the leadership team that have been working on this group since the beginning, but this group is not about them, it is about you. So as a thank you we are working on something that we haven't done before but we want to make sure you get it on your calendar now so you don't miss it!
Due to the special nature of this event, it will not be broadcast online, however San Francisco is wonderful in october, and it will be a great excuse to visit.
Here is the announcement, we will be screening "Design & Thinking"
"Design & Thinking" is a documentary exploring the idea of "design thinking"!
It will be one of the very few documentaries on design, and certainly the first about the impact design thinking has on the world.
Design Thinking was applied as a term and methodology by a design firm in 2008. It was received as a tool to solve every problem, from daily life decisions to business challenges to world hunger problems. Attention and debates followed; some insisted on design education in all K-12 schools, some declared it is just marketing tool for that firm, some hoped it would turn his company into Apple. Some said it's nothing new, just a new packaging of how creative people do things.
Join us to watch this and for a discussion after!
