My colleagues at Newsweek Daily Beast are trying to arrange some Google+ Hangouts with interesting tech industry folks. First one we’ve scheduled is this Wednesday, Dec. 7, at 4:30 p.m. East Coast time with Matias Duarte, a renowned computer interface designer who runs the user experience team for Android. I spoke with him recently during a visit to Google and hope to publish a Q&A from the talk very soon. He’s a fascinating guy who studied fine arts as an undergraduate and hoped to become a painter. Before joining Google he worked at Palm, Helio and Danger.
I’m really excited about the chance to meet via Google+ and have others join the conversation, so I hope you will take a minute to drop in on our chat. We’ll be talking about Ice Cream Sandwich, of course, and about the new Galaxy Nexus phone. But I am hoping to get Matias talking about his approach to design and where human computer interfaces might evolve in the future.
We have another exciting guest lined up for next week. Will tell you more about that later.
