Technology has afforded us innumerable perks, improvements, and efficiencies that have changed our professional and personal lives for the better (and, sometimes, for the worse). But how can we move past our own self-serving application of technology and use it to enact positive social change?
Table Talks, our quarterly speaking series, returns next week with the topic "Technology for Social Good." Our incredible lineup this month features Obama for America's Michael Slaby, the University of Chicago's Matt Gee, user experience designer Carolyn Chandler, and Twilio's (and former TXI-er) Greg Baugues. They'll be discussing the ways in which they use technology to make positive impacts.
Table Talks are an informal series of lightning talks held over lunch at Table XI. The event is designed to foster idea exchange, collaboration, and learning, and hosts top-notch entrepreneurs, technologists, designers, and storytellers from Chicago and beyond. In honor of one of our clients, presentations follow the PechaKucha format: Each speaker has 20 slides (generally pictures) that automatically advance every 20 seconds. With this 400-second time limit, the talks stay fast and fun.
