This year I spent most of the year writing the book Calm Technology.
In February I spoke at the MCE2015 conference in Warsaw, Poland. In March, I put on the very first Web 1.0 Conference with Neocities.org. I got to give a keynote talk with my mentor Douglas Rushkoff at an event at Hilton Head Island!
