- Midwest UX is now accepting registrations. It looks like it’s shaping up to be a great event. There will be 3 keynote speakers: Christina Wodtke, Abby Covert & Karl Fast. Looking forward to this event in Grand Rapids!
- The next Akron UX Meetup event will be on Weds, Sept 11 at the Tannery in downtown Kent. Paul Sherman will be giving a talk on “Building a UX-Focused Company Culture.” Check the meetup notice for more details.
Check out this kick-starter–it feels like it could have been inspired by the Bret Victor talk on the future of programming.
Bret Viktor on the Future of Programming
This talk is amazing–his approach reminds me a lot of reading an article by Atul Gawande (one of my personal heroes). The best kind of constructive criticism.
Probably a smart move, I don’t know nor do I particularly care. But what I do know is that holding companies have shifted the priorities of the agencies they hold from ideas to money. This mega-merger will only accelerate that trend.
Keen insights from Will Burns to which I can only add “Amen.”
