    Dale Dougherty, Founder of MAKE Magazine, Keynote @ PDX Maker Week


    We're very excited to present Maker luminary, Dale Dougherty from O'Reilly and Make Magazine as our Keynote speaker at PDX Maker Week! Following Mr. Dougherty, there will be an engaging panel discussion, "Inclusion and Diversity in Creative Tech Culture". Join other PDX Makers in the beautiful Wieden+Kennedy Pearl District space to be informed, inspired, and ignited. Free tickets available on the website.

    Dale Dougherty is the founder and CEO of Maker Media, Inc. in Sebastopol, CA. Maker Media produces Make Magazine, which launched in 2005, and Maker Faire, which was held first in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2006. MAKE has been the catalyst for a worldwide Maker Movement that is transforming innovation in industry, hands-on learning in education and the personal lives of makers of all ages. MAKE invites everyone to become a maker, and integrate creative goals with technical skills. Dougherty was a co-founder of O'Reilly Media, where he was the first editor of their computing trade books, and developed GNN in 1993, the first commercial website. He coined Web 2.0 in 1993. MAKE started at O'Reilly Media and spun out as its own company in January 2013.

    Mr. Dougherty's new book with Tim O'Reilly and Ariane Conrad, Free To Make: How the Maker Movement is Changing Our Schools, Our Jobs, and Our Minds, will be published late September, 2016.
