Angela Ahrendts had the winning formula with Burberry combining on-line with off-line solutions (a reason she's at Apple now). She inspired her employees and end consumers in an aspirational community. Profitability comes from everyone connected in contextual meaning. Join this exciting meet up group of creatives and empowered individuals. A human centered approach to technology. Cross pollinating success stories of what works and what doesn't. Living in the moment (Albert Einstein) with technology does. Or, as Google would say social engagement + micro-moments is the future. It's all listening and not likes. Production for the masses. Community management by design in culture. http://www.meetup.com/Design-thinking-for-social-impact-UI-UX-Human-Centered/
Putting a human face on technology? Theory comes from practical understanding and observation. Synthesize experiences from principles and theory. Is it mobile first? Maybe it's culture first. The most revolutionary meet-up you won't want to miss as it's people needs first. As we are accustomed to things, wants, and money it's quite the opposite. It's community management with mass personalization at scale. Learn how privacy, security and identities will come forth by empowerment first in IAAS all the way down to the individual.Design through creativity is the only way out. Such an inspirational time in history as this meet-up is focused on not mass production but production by the masses that supports an ecosystem. Don't miss out on connecting humans and nature. http://www.meetup.com/Design-thinking-for-social-impact-UI-UX-Human-Centered/

Marc Benioff surrounded himself with Steve Jobs. David Kelley did as well from IDEO. Apple's core values (The "WHY"):1. Purpose and imagination2. Consumer trust and engagement3. Technology, data and design4. Innovation networks5. Global reach and local delivery channels6. Power, influence and capitalWe are stuck on the "WHAT". The future is clearly defined by connecting dots between what Steve Jobs believed and, "Protecting the ecosystem", "You are your own brand", "It's all consumer satisfaction".
