It's true, we're suckers for good design, which is why we're sponsoring Core77's next Design2.0 event in Boston next month. This one's all about the intersection of technology and product design. We have a pair of tickets for the event to give away, so if you're in the Boston metro area and would like to attend, please post something in the comments below by 11:59PM EST on Tuesday, the 24th and we'll pick two winners at random.

"As products and systems become smarter and more technologically imbued, the mandate of the designer is thrown into question. If we can make anything, what should we make? And if all of our activities have consequences - environmental, economic and social - what are the opportunities for moving positively into the future? How can we balance serving interests with setting agendas? Join us for a panel discussion on the front lines."
