ThingConf, A Conference in New York City for People Who Build Online Businesses Around Physical Products

ThingConf, a one-day conference for people who build online businesses around physical products, takes place on August 3, 2014 at Orbital, new space in New York City launched by Gary Chou in the old Kickstarter headquarters.

The conference will feature talks by successful entrepreneurs and designers including Max Temkin (creator of Cards Against Humanity) and multifaceted designer Matthew Borgatti (whose work has shown up on Laughing Squid on several occasions). The conference is being organized by data visualizer and “GIF empress” Rachel Binx, who is raising funds for the event on Kickstarter.
