  1. Programmers Are the New Creatives

    Programming has long been the domain of logic and order, but with the ubiquity of programming languages in our lives and the growth in tools to help you code, there has come a newfound ability for self-expression and creativity through code.

    Cameron Adams will be exploring the creative aspects of coding and how it relates to design and art. With a focus on visual and interactive design, Cameron will look at the many ways in which you can stay creative with code of all sorts — JavaScript, Processing (Java), HTML, CSS, ActionScript, even BASIC — and put the fun back into the technologies you work with everyday.

  2. MacTalk Podcast at Webstock 2011 - Natasha Lampard & Mike Brown

    The final chapter of our Webstock adventure sees us talking to Mike Brown & Natasha Lampard, the super-awesome primary organisers of the Webstock conference. Again, it’s also short as these two are incredibly busy, but Pete asks them about how they put on such a damn fine show, how they choose their speakers and why Wellington?

    Also want to put a post-script to this entry, to say that Webstock is by far, the best conference I’ve ever been to. Never before has a tech conference had me cry, laugh and contemplate my past, present and future like Webstock has. Unless I commit a crime in the next 12 months and New Zealand won’t let me in, you can bet your arse I’ll be back.

  4. Everything The Network Touches

    The work we’re collectively doing—opening up gradually all of human information and media, making it recombinable, helping people create and share their work—is a huge unspoken, sexy, world-redefining mission.

    It’s a mission that many of us have become blasé about, almost unaware of. It’s a project so large that it’s hard to get a grasp on. And the next few years are going to get even more interesting as the network pervades physical objects and environments, sensing and manifesting information in the real world.

    It’s time to recognise the scale of the project we have in front of us, the breadth of the material we have to work with, and the possibilities of design within it. All of human knowledge, creativity—even the planet itself—is our canvas.

  6. Luke Stevens – Data driven design | Web Directions

    Far from being the enemy, data can be a designer’s best friend. So much so that it just might be the backbone of the next evolution of web design. Data doesn’t mean less creativity and experimentation, it means more. We’ve learned how to design sites that look good, and we know how to mark up our pages with web standards. Now it’s time to figure out what performs best.

    In this session you’ll learn not just the fundamental concepts of this ‘new web design’, but how you can get started with data-driven design using free tools that are available right now. If you’ve reached a point where you know how to design and build attractive, standards-based web sites and are wondering what comes next, this is the session for you.
