Hello Group490 Members!
We're about to schedule the next 3-4 months of Meetups and need your feedback on just two things:
1. If you're in the Bay Area, can you best attend Monday or Tuesday meetups in the Peninsula, San Francisco and/or the East Bay?
2. Are you, or do you know, someone working in product design for the Base of the Pyramid, or connected to appropriate technology in a developing country, or who can talk about cultural issues in a developing country with regard to needed products or enterprise development, or who is working on a related project?
We are developing a series of Meetups where we can learn from and collaborate with each other in the design, development and delivery of affordable, accessible, enabling and empowering products.
Personally, I became involved in this area after attending several such "sharings," notably Ralf Hotchkiss and the Whirlwind Wheelchair project, and Martin Fisher's work in developing treadle pumps... And, more recently, the work of Paul Polak and IDE.
I look forward to hearing from you, and about your ideas.
