be held on MARCH 12th, 7:30PM:

As frog design celebrates its 40th anniversary, Mark Rolston, Chief
Creative Officer, will moderate a round table discussion that will
examine the tension between vision and pragmatism, conceptual thinking

real impact, it must be brought to life.

What a great event.
I found this on the blog sphere today:
It highlights this as both a frog design and IxDA China event.

This is the 2nd event in less than 6 months where frog design and a
local IxDA group co-organized a substantial event together.

Kudos to IxDA China and frog for putting this together. I hope the
IxDA community (and then some) in Shanghai show up in force. I only
wish I could go!
