  6. xxvii ~ Jack Kavanagh ~ The Magic of Authenticity

    Jack Kavanagh is a life coach, motivational speaker, business analyst, a pharmacy masters graduate and a wheelchair user. On the first day of a summer holiday to Portugal back in 2012, Jack dived into the ocean hitting his head off a sand bank and breaking his neck. This left him paralysed from the neck down with less than 15% global muscle function.

    Jack has a gift. His mental clarity is refreshing. His outlook on life; Inspirational. Here is a young guy who was left in a wheelchair after a freak accident at the age of 20. He lives with no resentment, no bitterness, no anger. After the event, he went through a transformative time where by experiencing his rock bottom, he began to rebuild, forming a mind so strong that it made him unbreakable. When there’s a will, there’s always a way and there certainly was when it came to jack.

    In this week’s episode we speak about body image issues and the destructive role its playing in young people’s lives. We talk about the importance of using a constructive and positive internal voice when speaking to yourself and how valuable some self-compassion can be in times of stress. We delve into the issue of how society perceive abilities and disabilities, restricting you from being your true authentic self.

  7. Empathy Reifies Disability Stigmas (Liz Jackson, Interaction19)

    Designers frequently rely on empathy to design for disability, without understanding the implicit biases and long-term consequences of their good intentions. Liz Jackson is creating a new paradigm of design that foregrounds disabled expertise; showing designers how to prioritise the knowledgeable fearlessness of social justice advocates over traditional charitable models of empathy.

  8. Marie Van Driessche: Designing for deaf people, for everyone actually (Frontend United, Utrecht)

    Websites are a very visual medium. You therefore might think that they will work for people who are Deaf. But is that true? Marie tells a personal and entertaining story about things you’ve never realised. About four-dimensional language, the pros and cons of video captions, the recognition of exclusion and, of course, the importance of inclusivity.

    If you think about improving usability and accessibility of your website, there’s some points of interests that are already well known. For example, use enough contrast to make text readable. When using colours in your designs, consider people who are color blind. Do not write complicated text, and so on.

    But there are so many more things you can do. In order to find out what these things are, you really need to listen to people who are dealing with a particular ‘disability’ or situation. People will tell or show you things that you never considered before.

    If you want to reach a large or a specific group, you have to involve people from that group in the design process. Listen to the people who are the real experts, to those who are in a particular situation and run into their particular problems daily. They are the real experts.

  9. Cennydd Bowles: Future Ethics (Frontend United, Utrecht)

    Technology was never neutral; its social, political, and moral impacts have become painfully clear. But the stakes will only get higher as connected cameras will watch over the city, algorithms oversee society’s most critical decisions, and transport, jobs, and even war will become automated. The tech industry hasn’t yet earned the trust these technologies demand.

    Drawing on years of research for his new book Future Ethics, designer Cennydd Bowles will illuminate the moral challenges that lie ahead for technologists, and discuss how practitioners and companies can create more thoughtful, ethical products for future generations.

  10. Daniel Kahneman — Why We Contradict Ourselves and Confound Each Other - The On Being Project

    With his book Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman emerged as one of the most intriguing voices on the complexity of human thought and behavior. He is a psychologist who won the Nobel Prize in economics for helping to create the field of behavioral economics — and is a self-described “constant worrier.” It’s fun, helpful, and more than a little unnerving to apply his insights into why we think and act the way we do in this moment of social and political tumult.
