The local Technology Alliance Group has a couple of interesting events happening in January. Here some info from the news releases:
-- The Technology Alliance Group for Northwest Washington will be sponsoring an Intro to 3D Printing Class led by local inventor, Ivan Owen.
Ivan Owen is a special effects artist, designer, inventor and 3D printing enthusiast from Bellingham. His focus is now primarily based around 3D printing and the positive effect that it can have on our future. His work includes co-creating the Robohand partial hand prosthesis, which is now in use by over 200 individuals across the globe and, due to the low-cost of the manufacturing technology, it has been provided to most of these people for free.
The course will run January 11, 18, 25 and February 1. Students can register online no later than Monday, Jan. 6 at tagnw.org.
-- On Friday, Jan. 17, Technology Alliance Group for Northwest Washington will be holding its 10th Annual Predictions Luncheon, featuring Mark Anderson, noted speaker and technologist.
Anderson is a frequently sought speaker at corporate meetings and conferences around the world, and he provides top-level strategic reviews for management teams. He is also the founder and chair of the Future in Review (“FiRe”) Conference (futureinreview.com), named “the best technology conference in the world” by the Economist.
The event will be held from 11:30 AM – 1:15 PM in the Syre Auditorium at Whatcom Community College. For anyone who is unable to attend the event in person, there is an option to register for a live stream of the event at tagnw.org.
