The Future Will Be Boring (and Awesome) | Paul O'Connor

A decade from now, moonshots will still be moonshots—inspiring, but unlikely. So how can we use these next 10 years productively, improving the world around us? What if instead of gazing at the moon we studied the ignored corners of our everyday lives?  Paul O'Connor will detail the shifts in technology—from the Nest thermostat to Amazon Dash button—and global consumer expectations that have transformed these forgotten moments of our lives into massive businesses. He will outline the principles and pitfalls of redesigning our most mundane experiences and just might convince you why being boring—isn’t such a bad thing after all.
