Come join us for some schmoozing and a presentation on ustyme, an extremely cool app platform for kids by Joe Salesky, the man behind video conferencing!

ustyme (  is the first platform for content-centered-interaction, bridging the gaps in our time together with video calls that turn screen time into "us-time" using books, games and other activities to create a rich social experience. The meet-up will discuss the potential of content-centered-interaction to increase the value of both media assets and synchronous communication, leveraging today's mobile and web platforms to propel content commerce while creating significant societal value in 1:1 shared experiences with kids. Joe will share the lessons learned as they have rolled out ustyme globally and the opportunity he sees for turning screen-time into “us time”.

    I'm looking for designers who want to help design solutions for education this weekend during Startup Weekend Education Oakland event. We bring together designers, educators, developers & hustlers to design prototypes to solve challenges faced in learning & teaching. Startup Weekend Education begins with open-mic 60-second pitches on Friday night that result in the formation of small teams around the best, most viable education concepts.
    Teams spend Saturday & Sunday focusing on user research and designing & building prototypes with the help of experienced startup coaches. On Sunday, teams demo their education products and receive valuable feedback from a panel of expert judges. The video below shows the prototypes build during Minneapolis's event.
    You can use the discount code Design4EDU to get 50% off your ticket at which includes 7 meals, infinite Post-It Notes and coffee for the entire weekend.
