Particle Interactions: Interview with Richard Whitney 8/26 at 4pm PT

Update: Transcript of the interview is now available HERE.

Update: The livestream is over, but you can still catch the recording HERE!

We’ll be livestreaming a short hangout with Richard Whitney, Particle’s Head of Product, on Wednesday 8/26 from 4-5pm PT (San Francisco time). @Dick designed the Internet Button and oversees the development and design of the Particle experience-- everything our customers see, touch, or interact with.

This is the third in a recurring series of interviews with Particle team leaders. We’ll be having these every two weeks. You’ll hear from a Particle team leader such as Zach Supalla (CEO), Zachary Crockett (CTO/Software), Stephanie Rich (Business), or William Hart (Hardware/Manufacturing) in each release of Particle Interactions. The first half hour will be an interview, and in the second half hour we take questions from viewers in the open hangout.

I’ll post the hangout here when we have it up and running for livestreaming, and the link to the YouTube recording after the hangout is finished. Afterwards, I’ll also transcribe the interview and post it on this thread.

Feel free to comment and note things that you have questions about here beforehand, knowing that we are trying to keep the interview at a digestible length and that we will likely not answer every question live in the interview. During the interview, you can post questions in the chat box on the YouTube link. Any questions we don’t get to will have answers posted in text form.
