The 2007 IDSA Northeast District Conference “Shift” takes place in Providence this weekend, and sounds like a lot of fun:

This year’s Shift Conference will hit the pulse of industrial design!

Shift takes on current notable shifts in our industry by gathering a speaker line-up from Patagonia, Black Diamond, Treehugger, Kid Robot, Core77, Frog Design, the Smithsonian Institute and the Ministry of Culture…to name just a sampling of the talent.

IDSA and the RISD ID department are honored to host each attendee on RISD’s world class campus for discussions on topics including: eco-strategies, entrepreneurialism, progressive research methods,interaction design, and comparisons between China and India.

MAKE is a sponsor, and I’ll be there snapping pictures and checking out the scene. I’m looking forward to Saturday’s Gala Night and not just because it takes place at ITEM NPD’s 80,000 square foot operation. IDSA NED Shift Conference, Friday, April 20 to Sunday, April 22. – Link
