Nike Materials Index Hackathon
PIE: Portland Incubator Experiment

Nike MSI is one of many approaches to evaluate the environmental sustainability of materials and the suppliers that produce them. We have created this forum to capture feedback and new ideas from users and reviewers.

We hope that releasing this framework and data will jumpstart a rich conversation within the footwear and apparel industry. Please participate with questions and comments regarding the value of our approach, ways to improve and build upon Nike MSI, data to populate new materials and a wider variety of supply chains, and the development of a centrally managed, open-source center of excellence that provides access to all.

Forge Portland

At this unique meetup, "I want to work for _ _ _ _ _ _", each month we introduce a new company through one of their star employees.

For September its going to be Gokul Surya from Nike!

In his own words, here's how Gokul manages his career:

"Continuously iterate to reach the pinnacle” is what comes to my mind whenever I take time to think about the future. I believe that people, processes and perspectives will help me get to where I want to be. Trusting the people, collaborating on developing the processes, and using different perspectives to solve problems along the path to develop a successful organization.

You definitely don't want to miss this :)

Thankfully, Mark Wyner is determined to humanize those experiences. As a user experience designer, Mark has architected software for the US Army, Nike, Intel, Chrysler, and more. He has eloquently addressed the need for interfaces we understand and trust, both in writing and as a speaker at events like Webvisions. Come hear about his efforts to work with the machines, before they take over for good.
