  1. In Online Dating, Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist

    OKCupid is one of the largest dating sites in the world with over 4 million monthly active users. While the explicit purpose of OKCupid is to help users find romance, the site’s co-founder Christian Rudder has discovered a dual purpose for the information produced through the dating site.

    Courting controversy, Rudder has sorted through the data of 25 million users, revealing findings on beauty, attraction, race, and gender. Rudder has recently released some of those numbers in a book titled Dataclysm. In this short video, Rudder shares some of his discoveries and discusses “who we are when we think no one’s looking.”

  3. To eliminate waste, we need to rediscover thrift | Andrew Dent

    There’s no such thing as throwing something away, says Andrew Dent — when you toss a used food container, broken toy or old pair of socks into the trash, those things inevitably end up in ever-growing landfills. But we can get smarter about the way we make, and remake, our products. Dent shares exciting examples of thrift — the idea of using and reusing what you need so you don’t have to purchase anything new — as well as advances in material science, like electronics made of nanocellulose and enzymes that can help make plastic infinitely recyclable.

  4. How Designers Destroyed the World - Mike Monteiro, at USI

    Information and subscription on http://www.usievents.com

    Mike Monteiro run Mule Design Studio. He came to USI to talk about moral responsibility in its job. Designers have a responsibility, not only to themselves and to their clients, but also to the wider world: as designers, we create new things. That’s a huge responsibiliy that can be amazing, only if you wonder “what do I want to create, and not to create?”

    We are designers because we love to create, but creation without responsibility breeds destruction. Every day, designers all over the world work on projects without giving any thought or consideration to the impact that work has on the world around them. This attitude leads to destruction, and this needs to change. To illustrate its talk, Mike Monteiro use the exemple of broken lifes because of a change in Facebook Confidentiality Parameters. For Mike Monteiro, every designers should wonder what are the consequences of their job : “be more scared of your work’s consequences than you love the smartness of your own ideas”.

    A French report of the conference is available on the USI blog: http://bit.ly/1DyCe54

  5. Jeremy Keith @ The Digital Pond - Responsive Design

    Jeremy Keith speaking at Responding to the Responsive Web in August 2014.

    More about the event: http://cybrd.uk/rwd-pond The Digital Pond: http://www.thedigitalpond.com On Meetup: http://www.meetup.com/The-Digital-Pond/

    Jeremy Keith, co-founder of Clearleft, took us on a journey through the past, present and future of web design. Jeremy believes designers are held back by the printed page and he encourages us to shed this mental model and embrace the unlimited possibilities of the web. Another key takeaway was that designing for every device doesn’t have to mean creating an identical experience for each. With that in mind, he ended with the controversial statement that “if you’re building a website today and it’s not responsive, it’s broken”.

  6. From the Archives: The Story Behind the ‘World’s Most Famous Atheist’ Richard Dawkins: Forum

    British zoologist Richard Dawkins turned evolutionary theory on its head when he published his book, ‘The Selfish Gene,’ in 1976. His recently released autobiography, ‘An Appetite for Wonder,’ sheds light on the first 35 years of Dawkins’ life, from his birth in Kenya, to his fascination with science at Oxford, to the origin of his gene-centered view about natural selection. He joins us in the studio.
