Thanks to everyone who came out last night to the presentations at NinetyTwo13! It was a chilly night, but we had a lot of new and old faces joining us for the two spectacular talks. Hope everyone enjoyed the drinks & snacks provided as well. This will be our LAST UX TALK TOKYO OF THE YEAR. I know, it makes me sad too… but we will back in full swing in 2018! Hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and feel free to get in touch with Ryan or Tom if you are interested in giving a talk in the new year. 🙂

21_21 has a new exhibit called “Wild Untamed Mind” going on now until February 4th.

At the same time you are visiting 21_21, Design Hub has a free exhibit called “Habu & Mongoose” going on in Tokyo Midtown until December 24th.

Our first speaker mentioned a rather interesting book called “Ends: Why we overlook endings for humans, products, services and digital” by Joe Macleod. Our second speaker mentioned a rather interesting article on design ethics written by Allan Chochinov called “A 1000 Words, Manifesto in the Sustainability of Design“. Check them out!


See you all next year!
