Jon Pittman is our VP of Corporate Strategy. Jon has also been a Lecturer at the Haas School of Business of the University of California at Berkeley. One of the elements of our strategy is exploring what design capabilities are needed by our customers to design places, things, and media in an everything-is-connected world. We're also investigating what the educational experience should be to prepare students to use such tools. As part of studying this first-hand, Jon has 150 connected devices at his home. He recently wrote an article for the Line//Shape//Space blog.
