About the speakers
Christian Crumlish has a decade’s experience leading product teams, with several decades of UX success behind that. He is currently product lead for COVID-19 features at the Office of Digital Innovation of the state of California, responsible for California’s pandemic website. Last year he built a product team at PathCheck Foundation, a volunteer open-source nonprofit privacy-first pandemic solution platform for COVID-19, now focusing on vaccine distribution. He consults on product and UX leadership at Design in Product, where he also hosts a community that explores the overlap between UX design and product management.
Formerly, he was head of product at 7 Cups, winner of the 2016 Stanford Medicine X Prize for health systems design and a 2019 World Economic Forum Pioneer. He has also co-chaired the monthly BayCHI program, was a director of product at CloudOn, was director of messaging products for AOL, was the last curator of the Yahoo design pattern library, and served two terms as a director of the late lamented Information Architecture Institute.
He is the author of the bestselling The Internet for Busy People (McGraw-Hill) and The Power of Many (Wiley), and co-author of Designing Social Interfaces (O’Reilly). Christian lives in Palo Alto with his wife, Briggs Nisbet, and an ever-growing collection of ukuleles.
