Flipping the Bird!: How we Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the E-scooter (and Other Disruptive Transit)
October 13, 2018 • 12:00 pm PDT
A KCRW/DnA x IndieCade design jam on e-Scooters and the future of mobility!
Dockless e-scooters have presented the biggest disruption to transportation since ridesharing.
Yet they also have huge potential — to resolve the first mile, last mile challenge; to transport people to work and school; and to bring the fun back into mobility that has diminished as traffic congestion has grown.
How will these transit innovations change our lives and the form of the city?
We’ll find out when KCRW/DnA teams up with USC gaming and city design experts Jeff Watson (Situation Lab) and Jose Sanchez to present a “Think Indie” design jam at IndieCade 2018, the international festival of independent games taking place at Santa Monica College’s Center for Media and Design on October 12 and 13th.

**Materials? Bring pens, paper, and/or your laptop – and an open mind to tap into the imaginative potential of games, experiences and built environments — to think big about how e-scooters and other new mobility solutions can transform our lives and our cities.
“Flipping The Bird” design jam takes place Saturday October 13th, from 12-2 pm, in Room 216 at SMC’s Center for Media and Design.
Entrance to the design-jam is free with a Saturday day admission to IndieCade.
