  1. Maciej Ceglowski - Superintelligence: The Idea That Eats Smart People (Keynote)

    Talk given at WebCamp Zagreb 2016. https://2016.webcampzg.org/talks/view/superintelligence-the-idea-that-eats-smart-people/

    KEYNOTE A skeptical view on the seductive, apocalyptic beliefs that prevent people in tech from really working to make a difference. Apocalyptic ideas have traditionally been the province of religion, but nerds have found a way to import them into the world of computer programming. These ideas are a cognitive hazard that preferentially infects smart people, making them useless for more practical work. Like other forms of religious obsession, fantasies of superintelligence prevent us from tackling problems in this life by convincing us to focus on the life to come. This talk is an attempt to vaccinate the next generation of developers against the seductive ideas of existential risk, superintelligence, and the charismatic religious figures who will try to eat their brains.

  2. Let Us Now Praise Ordinary People – Mike Monteiro – btconfBER2016

    Everywhere you turn, companies are promising to change the world. But when the people already on top promise to change the world, you have to wonder how and for whom. The how isn’t usually in your benefit, and the for whom isn’t usually for you. The world is working exactly as they’ve designed it to work. So if we really want to change it, we need to change not just how we design it, but who is designing it.

  4. SmashingConf Barcelona 2015: Graphic Design in the 21st Century: Is the Internet Killing Creativity?

    Is the internet, for all its technology, best-practice guides, metrics and measurements making us better designers? Or is it killing creativity, homogenising ideas and undermining the notion of original thought? Join me as I explore how the practice of graphic design has changed since the information revolution.

  7. RWD Podcast Episode 41 : Peter-Paul Koch — Responsive Web Design

    This week I’m joined by Peter-Paul Koch of quirksmode.org fame. We talk about a conference PPK is co-organising, the state of the mobile device browsers, and perhaps decide that the web needs to creep along rather than streak ahead of come to a standstill. I thoroughly enjoyed this chat and I’m sure you will too.

  8. Scott Jehl – Delivering Responsibly – beyond tellerrand DÜSSELDORF 2015

    Building responsively allows us to create flexible user interfaces that support the widest possible audience with a single front-end codebase. But in embracing the ever-increasing contexts in which our sites are used, performance and accessibility must remain our highest priorities; we must continually question each code addition, and improve our delivery and application techniques to ensure they’re best serving users’ needs.

    This talk will explore the challenges of creating fast and broadly-accessible websites and offer approaches that dramatically improve performance, usability, access, and sustainability.
