ATTENTION GREEN GADGET GEEKS!
The Greener Gadgets Conference is returning to New York City this February, and promises to be even bigger and better than our inaugural event in 2008. We’ve been talking about it for the last few months, but now we have an exciting announcement we would like to make about the lineup of the conference. We are thrilled to announce that inventor, engineer and all-around-tech-renaissance man Saul Griffith has signed on to give the keynote presentation for the event.
Dr. Saul Griffith is an innovator and inventor of many talents who is best known for founding some of green tech’s most promising companies, including: the how-to website Instructables, wind power company Makani Power, portable kinetic energy company Potenco, engineering design company Squidlabs, and educational cartoon HowToons. He recently won a MacArthur Genius Grant for his inventions, has spoken at TED (watch the video below), and regularly contributes to Make and Craft Magazines. We could not think of a person who better exemplifies the inventive and intrepid spirit of Greener Gadgets, and are thrilled to have Saul Griffith on board to keynote our event.
