Dennis Crowley, Founder and Executive Chairman of Foursquare, spoke at Design Driven NYC in February 2020. He spoke about finding inspiration from weird places, why it’s okay to take multiple swings at the same problem, the importance of building for devices people carry *today* not in two years time, and more. He also shared a sneak peek of Marsbot for Airpods—a new project out of Foursquare Labs that utilizes a combination of location data and the airpod interface to deliver a unique kind of real-world experience augmenting the everyday.
