On May 24th, AOS together with Nefula, performed  a one day workshop to explore Near Future Design methodology in the context of NextFest by Wired Italia.

NFD workshops are topic based: for NextFest we decided to investigate the near future of Riot, which turned out to be an highly interesting topic for the whole group.

About 20 participants from allover Italy formed a stimulating group who worked passionately to understand and apply NDF methodology.
