  1. Untangling the Web: Ideologies of the Technologies

    How has the most revolutionary innovation of our time - the Internet - transformed our world? What does it mean for the modern family? How has it changed our concepts of privacy? Of celebrity? Of love, sex and hate?

    In this excerpt from Untangling the Web: What the Internet is Doing to You, author Dr Aleks Krotoski raises a thought provoking question: do we rule the technology, or is it ruling us?.

    "Aleks Krotoski is a rare combination of academic (she has a PhD in psychology), geek, reporter and fluent essayist." - The Guardian

    "Her combination of cautious academic rigour and geek-like enthusiasm makes a very valuable contribution to the debate" - Financial Times

  8. The Dunning-Kruger effect

    The dumb get confident, while the intelligent get doubtful. That’s the conclusion that David Dunning and Justin Kruger came to when studying people’s perceptions of their own talents. What has now become known as the Dunning-Kruger effect helps describe why lay people often act as experts and inept pollies get our votes.

  9. Jamie XXs Mix for Colette

    The xx beatmaker and remix-maestro, Jamie XX was commissioned by Parian fashion uber-boutique, Colette, to assemble and present an hour long mix of tunes their patrons can spend $465 on a pair of shorts to. Unsurprisingly, Jamie’s mix leans heavily toward everything big beats and wob-wob-wobbly — not that I’m complaining. There’s also a fine amount of UK Garage that will also get you going.

  10. Leveraging Cognitive Bias in Social Design - Joshua Porter

    Humans are not perfectly rational. We’re full of biases that colour the way we think and act. Smart designers can use these biases in their favour, to attract and convince people that their software is worth using. In this talk Josh will share some insights into how to use cognitive bias to get people signing up for and using your software.
