He is the author of a number of books and sometimes also stands in front of cameras. You can often find him at conferences talking about interesting things or deploying sensors to measure them. A couple of years ago, he rolled out a mesh network of five hundred sensor motes covering the entirety of Moscone West during Google I/O. He’s still recovering. A few years before that, he caused a privacy scandal by uncovering that your iPhone was recording your location all the time, which caused several class-action lawsuits and a US Senate hearing. Some years on, he still isn’t sure what to think about that.


Alasdair sporadically writes blog posts about things that interest him or, more frequently, provides commentary in 140 characters or less. He is a contributing editor for Make magazine and a contributor to O’Reilly Radar. Alasdair is a former academic.

I was born in Southern California. I did my undergraduate and graduate studies at Stanford, specializing in quantitative economics and operations research. I discovered both academic disciplines benefited greatly from computer simulation and I found my passions increasingly directed toward realizing products and experiences through software.


Another thread in my personal and professional life has been a love for teams of people. I find few things to be as stimulating as a smart and motivated group of people coming together in a common pursuit.


Combining the above interests, the culture of Silicon Valley (and Stanford itself, for that matter) has been a perfect fit for
\n me. After initially working as software engineer for a number of years and then plying the waters in technology management as a CTO, I founded Integration Appliance in 2000. I stepped down as CEO and away from day-to-day operations at IntApp in May, 2007 and served on the board through 2012. Today, IntApp is a successful and growing company.


Part of the reason for stepping away from a mature business is the quest for new challenges. Another part is the desire to get
\n back to the root of where many great technologies and ideas emerge; academia. I currently teach computer science at Stanford University and also run Facebook Open Academy as part of a larger Facebook effort to modernize education. I find it very fulfilling to help motivated, bright minds grow and succeed.

Rachel Magario is an Assistive Technology Specialist at Pacer Simon Technology Center. As the first totally blind interaction designer, Rachel is known as a leader and visionary who has triumphed over adversity consistently throughout her life.


Rachel has presented at SXSW Interactive and consulted for various companies and universities throughout the United States on accessibility. Rachel has an MBA with a concentration in Marketing and a Masters in Interaction design from the University of Kansas.


Magario\u2019s dream is that usability and accessibility can be considered from the start of a project and not as an after thought. She believes this would open the door for access of information and for accessible tools. This shift would allow her and others to pursue their careers of choice and live with the dignity that should be the right of every human.


Rachel has been involved with accessibility consulting and advocacy since the early 2000s. Throughout the years, Rachel served as an accessibility consultant to several university related projects and non-profit sites that were required to comply with section 508.


Rachel soon realized through her experience that accessibility issues often involve problems of usability that affect anyone who accesses information. When Rachel started her Masters in Interaction Design, she experienced the lack of accessibility in the design tools that she was using as well as in end products coming out of these tools.
\nSince then, Rachel has made her mission to research and develop models and prototypes of accessible user experience. She enjoys working closely with designers and developers to ensure standards are met and to create awareness of the importance of accessible user experience.
