We Shipped This #1
Posted on 25th April 2012 by Asi Sharabi -
Last Friday we had our very first We Shipped This meeting. Unlike every end-of-week-catch-up-over-beers meetings, the idea of WST is to dedicate a special ocassion to celebrate making and makers; the launch of new products or succesful itteration and further development of existing ones. We're hoping to make this a tradition and run these delivery focused meetings every quarter or so.
We had the legendary Michael Norton (who is working with us on our social interns program) guest-talking about ideas that change the world, the fine line beweeen the crazy and the practical, and how persistence in the beginning of your journey and working through hurdels can only get you stronger. #inspiring
Ian had some facinating learnings from the making of Flamingo's Field Notes which recently went global. We then had Emily our League of Meals dudette telling us about her analouge-status-paper-robots design project. And finally Jonny talked about the making of Buddy's new website and film and how tricking yourself into making stuff but not formaly designing can unlock some designer-blocks and freeing up the creative process.
But the star of the meeting was no doubt the one and only Darren Riley AKA Bugle Major
