Google I/O – Exploring Augmented Reality Interaction – 
Wed. May 9, 3:30PM – 4:30PM – Stage 7 – Beginner

Friends doing awesome stuff alert!

Chris Kelley is a design lead in AR/VR prototyping at Google and is speaking on this panel.

CK and a couple other good boys first put me up when I arrived in LA 15 years ago.  We have been through so much together over the years… we scrummed down together on the footie pitch to pocket a couple national titles, roomed in a crummy flat in Venice Beach, noodled a fair number of good and bad business ideas, and lit out across the earth in search of adventure more than once. He’s since married a lovely gal, has beautiful new daughter, moved to SF, and landed at Google.  And for my friends in the Bay curious about AR @ Google, feel free to ping me to connect with him.  He truly is a wonderful and brilliant person and is an expert in the field.  I consider him one of my very best friends and most trusted advisors.

And if you find yourself at Google I/O this year, do go listen to him speak and heckle him.  It’s fine if you blame me.

Nomad List is the biggest crowdsourced database of cities in the world analyzing 250,000+ data points to help you choose where to go next — and when you arrive, it connects you with 49,738+ 🌍 nomads there.
