Gel (Good Experience Live) is a one-day conference being held at the NY Historical Society in Manhattan at the end of April. The focus is on “experience”, which is a bit nebulous in comparison to a conference on technology or design, but that’s what makes it fun and interesting. Highlights from last year’s event were Ken Jackson’s talk on New York City, Jim Kunstler’s skewering of contemporary urban design, and a live performance by The Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players.
Scheduled to appear at this year’s Gel are Christo, Scott Heiferman from Meetup, and Andre Haddad, VP of User Experience and Design at eBay. If you register for Gel, tell ‘em Jason sent you (they have a referral program).
