The purpose of the weekly event is to give details about The Thornhill Design Laboratory, our continuous improvement and specific projects.  Join me each Wednesday morning (we start at 10:00 AM) in the Fireside Room at the Fremont Abbey Arts Center, 4272 Fremont Avenue in Seattle, Washington 98103.  Check: http://fremontabbey.org.  The salon will always be a source for everything at the Design Lab and up-to-the-minute news in the project design world. 

 

There is no mandatory fee to attend, but donations will be accepted when you register.  Pay what you choose.  Advance registration is requested.  Register today at: http://tdlsalon5.eventbrite.com.  Caution: The group is limited to twelve, so that each person can fully participate in the discussion.

 

Our book this week:  “Digital Darwinism, 7 Breakthrough Business Strategies In The Cutthroat Web Economy.”

Originally available in 1999 from Broadway Books, a division of Random House, Inc. The lessons detailed by author Evan I. Schwartz are even more important today.  We would certainly like to get your opinion.  Join us.

 

Also; Almost every company, organization, school, artist and entrepreneur will think this year about their basic technology and equipment for access.  This is our Digital Landscape.  With many changes afoot, think about “Program Integration” for existing and new devices. Have you started planning for the change? We can help.

 

Hospitality is part of the package.  Coffee and bottled water will be served.  You are welcome to bring pastries or treats for the group to enjoy.  If your company has bigger concepts for partnering with the Lab – let me know!

 

The busiest part of The Thornhill Design Lab is the Thornhill Digital Storytelling initiative.

There is more information on our blog at: http://digitalstorytellingseminar.blogspot.com/.
