John Maeda
Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers - Design Partner


Design is seen as increasingly important in technology companies due to the rise of design-conscious companies such as Apple, and now in the tech startup space, interest in design is seeing explosive growth in attention. Are we in an over-hyped design bubble? Or are we merely following a common pattern in the history of any maturing technology paradigm? Having seen many technology shifts while at the MIT Media Lab working with many industry partners, and then going deep on classical design as the 16th President of Rhode Island School of Design, John Maeda decided to learn-by-doing by moving to Silicon Valley. Maeda will be sharing stories, lessons, and principles that he's learned in his first half year as design partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and as chair of the eBay Inc Design Advisory Council.
