A mobile experience in China

Led by the indefatigable Lily Lu and sponsored by the Youth Times, SND held a workshop on “Gearing Up for the Mobile Age” in Hangzhou, China, this past weekend. Instructors Joey Marburger and Yuri Victor of the Washington Post taught 50-plus attendees in the three-day workshop. Every attendee left with the ability to create a mobile site. Every attendee also joined SND. This means the Society now boasts more than 100 members in the Middle Kingdom. I spoke with a few of the attendees about their experiences. Even when speaking through a translator it’s obvious we all share a universal design language.
