It was a very exciting week at Cooper last week. So much to celebrate. First, we want to congratulate and celebrate with Doug LeMoine and his wife Mara on the birth of their son. We can’t wait to meet this little man!
Clearly, Doug wasn’t able to give his talk at SXSW as planned but Alan and Nick both spoke at SXSW and contributed significantly. Nick’s talk, The Visual Interface Is Now Your Brand, was so popular and over capacity (of course!) that our own Alan Cooper couldn’t get in.
At Cooper, we don’t sweat the small stuff, but we do work to keep our cool over the big stuff. Those of us who weren’t at SXSW were lucky to host some of the brightest and most talented design muscle coming out of CMU design programs. We wish them luck with the rest of their year and, given their aspirations, we know you’ll be seeing them soon. Come back to Cooper soon!
Speaking about making a difference in the world, we want to congratulate Pipette and RockHealth. Pipette, a start-up who participated in RockHealth’s first class, was recently acquired by Ginger.io, an MIT Media Lab spin off. Congratulations to Pipette; the road to recovery is about to get a whole lot smoother for patients where Pipette is involved! And Congratulations to RockHealth for providing to be a successful incubator for start-ups in healthcare. Because of you, everyone’s future is a little better and perhaps longer!
