  1. Don’t strive to be famous, strive to be talented | Maisie Williams | TEDxManchester

    Maisie is an actress, an entrepreneur, and an activist. Yet to this day, she has no formal qualifications to her name. Her career has been built upon a symphony of seemingly normal opportunities that evolved into extraordinary, life changing events.

    Maisie tells the story of working on what ended up becoming the biggest television show of all time from the age of 12. She discusses why she thinks right now is the perfect time to build tools for communities and how her platform, daisie, will redefine creative collaboration.

    Margaret Constance Williams, known as Maisie Williams, is an English actress. She made her professional acting debut in 2011 as Arya Stark of Winterfell in the HBO world phenomenon Game of Thrones. Selected among 300 British actresses, she plays the role of a tomboyish young girl from a noble family for which she won numerous awards.

    Her broad artistic life led her to co-found Daisie, a social media aimed at creative people in the world of arts, fashion, tv, film, photography, music, and literature. The aim of the app is to bring individuals from across industries together, to help foster collaborations with other artists and provide an alternative route into creative industries.

  2. “Building Better Worlds”—Cennydd Bowles, DePaul University, 14th November 2019

  3. “Designing Intrinsic Layouts” by Jen Simmons—An Event Apart video

    Twenty-five years after the web began, we finally have a real toolkit for creating layouts. Combining CSS Grid, Flexbox, Multicolumn, Flow layout and Writing Modes gives us the technical ability to build layouts today without the horrible hacks and compromises of the past. But what does this mean for our design medium? How might we better leverage the art of graphic design? How will we create something practical, usable, and realistically doable? In this hour-long talk captured live at An Event Apart DC 2019 (aneventapart.com/event/washington-dc-2019), Jen Simmons (aneventapart.com/speakers/jen-simmons) walks you through the thinking process of creating accessible & reusable page and component layouts.

  5. You’re Already Awesome. Just Get Out of Your Own Way!: Judson Brewer MD, Ph.D. at TEDxRockCreekPark

    We have all experienced moments in our lives where everything just comes together in some almost magical way —whether playing music, participating in a sport, or just getting totally absorbed in a project. These moments are timeless, effortless, completely free of worry and delicious! As described by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, this is "flow" and is often a hallmark of exemplary performance —whether it is Michael Jordan scoring 50 points in a basketball game, or someone rising to a challenge that they never thought they would be able to handle.

    We’re lucky if we get into this "flow state" a few times in our entire lives. Is this flow state that hard to achieve? Is it more accessible to all of us than we think? And are we the only barrier that is keeping us getting into flow?

    Judson Brewer MD PhD, an addiction psychiatrist and neuroscientist at Yale University outlines several common ways that we get in our own way. Using examples such as Lolo Jones tripping on a hurdle in the 2008 Beijing Olympics and smokers resisting their cravings, he describes how we can get caught up in thinking, as well as resisting our own body sensations as ways that we prevent ourselves from performing optimally, in whatever situation arises.

  7. Intro to Kanban, Part 1 (Digital.Gov)

    Kanban is not strictly an Agile method as it can be used to model any flow-based process. However it is quite applicable for Agile situations, and is much more amenable to environments that are not concerned with software development. 18F’s Operations team used Kanban very successfully in 2016 to bring order to a chaotic process.
