Just received information on this event but it looks interesting hosted the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and a part of the 10th Annual National Design Awards. Perceptive Pixel won the Interaction Design award (http://bit.ly/2HtFFh). There seems to be several other FREE public programs (http://bit.ly/3UH7Et) occurring with Jeff Han (of PP) giving a talk on the Future of Interaction Design.
Anyone in the DC area may want to give it a look. I’m very tempted to head down myself.
