The ninth annual gathering for independent web creators of all kinds, graphic artists, designers, UX engineers, coders, hackers, to share ideas, create and improve their personal websites, and build upon each others creations.
I’m still working out a conflict to figure out if I’ll physically be in Portland in person, but at the very worst, I’ll definitely attend remotely. This is my favorite event of the entire year, so I definitely won’t miss it.
There are still some tickets left so RSVP now! I hope you’ll join me.
ABOUT THE TALK
For the past couple of decades, the tech companies of Silicon Valley (and beyond) have run unchecked, causing havoc, destroying civil discourse, democracy, ruining personal relationships, running marketplaces of harassment and abuse, all to line their pockets. The very worst part is that they did it with our labor.
This isn’t a talk, this is a union meeting.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Mike Monteiro is a designer and co-founder of Mule Design in San Francisco. He's been talking about design responsibility and ethics since before you were ready to listen. He’s written three books, including the just-released Ruined by Design.
A small number of books will be available for sale, which Mike will be able to sign after the talk. Otherwise, buy the book on Amazon. But really, just buy it and read it beforehand. It will help make the world better.
Follow him on Twitter, despite his feelings about Twitter: @monteiro
This was the event that touched off my idea to read Ruined by Design and start an IndieWeb Book club to discuss it.

Topic: Expiration Dates as Turning Points -or- How Lack of Opportunity Fuels Entrepreneurship
Do you have a self-imposed expiration date for your working life? When opportunities run out, what’s next?
We have come to know entrepreneurship as people finding an opportunity in the business space by creating a product or service that solves a problem in a new way. But often times it comes from something bigger, and a little more basic: the entrepreneur just doesn’t fit the mold. How glass ceilings, expiration dates, lack of opportunity, and burn-out all fuel startups.
