This year marked our largest and arguably, most successful conference yet. Taking place at the Jewish Museum on the beautiful Manhattan waterfront, PSFK presented panels, presentations, and a few surprise speakers who came to share their insights and inspiration on topics such as technology, design, urban issues, creativity, games, and the future potential of our society. It was exciting and educational stuff. For those of you who missed it, or for those who’d like a refresher, we present the videos of the speakers from the 2011 New York event.
