“Join an eclectic lineup of bike builders, geeks, gearheads and inventors for a series of short presentations on the (un)Wired Future of Bikes. Itâ€™s like convergence on wheels.”
Webvisions in Portland is an nationally-recognized conference that explores the future of Web design and technology. As part of this conference, on May the 20th, Bike Hugger is hosting a day of presentations on the future of bicycles. There are a wide range of topics but there were a couple that caught my eye:
– “The Future of Biking Wears Skirts and High Heels” by April Streeter. It sounds like it could be interesting!
– “Shoot it! Biking and Digital Photography” – Kris Krug. The digital camera has let us all capture our rides and share them around the world while we’re having a post-ride hot chocolate, so I am interested to see what Kris has to say on the subject.
More details after the break.
There were also a couple of topics that made me groan and hope that isn’t where our sport is heading. This one in particular:
“Making Your Bike a Hands-Free Mobile Office” by Joe Kurmaskie. I have to admit that every day I struggle to balance my office time and my riding time but I would never want the two to merge in any way. I believe that the ying of the office trudge needs the yang of the bike ride!
There will also be organised rides and an Expo area with lots of gadgets to see.
