It's just a week away so if you are in San Francisco on June 6, check out this great design and innovation conference by our partners, core77.

It's rare to have such luminaries as trend-spotter Robyn Waters, our very own Jessie Scanlon, the curator of our Innovation & Design portal, Diego Rodriquez of IDEO and Metacool, Peter Rojas of Endgadget fame and Steve Portigal, a really smart innovation consultant.

Understanding products within their brand, culture and marketing ecosystems is critical and that's what this conference is all about. Wish I could go.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal. LEARN MORE
