by Jon Follett

For Immediate Release
BOSTON, MA – April 29, 2013 – Bytes and Atoms, a micro conference exploring the Internet of Things and the interaction between the physical and digital, today announced the speakers for its inaugural program.

Organized by software and emerging technologies design firm Involution Studios and agile development consulting firm Pivotal Labs, and sponsored by O'Reilly Media and IxDA Boston, Bytes and Atoms is a one-of-a-kind event exploring the next great shift in interaction design and celebrating the region's groundbreaking technological accomplishments.
