FOWD NYC 2010 Presentation

Future of Web DesignI’m finally back in LA from my trip to New York and I’m extremely exhausted! Nevertheless, I had a spankin’ great time! As some of you probably already know, I was invited to speak at the Future of Web Design (hosted by Carsonified) last November 16 held at the New World Stages in none other than The Big Apple — New York City. I spoke about “What the Web Will Look Like in 2 Years?”

The venue and hotel we stayed in was great, learned a lot from the presentations of other speakers and most importantly, I met a lot of awesome folks!

I’d like to say a big thank you to Simon Collison, Bryan Chirls, Dmitry Dragliev of ZURB, Matt Scott and Bill Merikallio of Hot Design for allowing me to reference some topics I had in my talk to the materials/articles they have.

I’d also like to thank Jacob Gube, Chris Spooner, Nikki Jeske and Todd Miller for sharing to me their thoughts about the subject prior to the event. Also, to Midtown Toastmasters Club and Bryan Veloso (The Filipino Phenomenon) for the tips and lovely tweets!

I’d also like to thank everyone who had given some really nice feedback about my presentation. I never got the chance to meet all of you, but I hope we run into each other in one of the future conferences!

And last but not the least, to Carsonified for putting together such a kick-ass conference and making me part of it!

So as promised, here is my slide deck :)
