7. Technology and Design in Oregon
In this week's episode, Chris talks to the President and CEO of the Technology Association of Oregon (TAO), Skip Newberry.

The two talk about: - Focusing on the use of design when helping to reach communities outside of the standard spectrum. - The idea of how ubiquity matters, to reach the most people. - Leveraging technology as much as possible to augment in-person connectivity. - How Oregon tech companies are going through digital transformations and possibly utilizing design systems. - Portland's Smart Cities Initiative - Customer success in government rather than just customer service. - And more.
