  1. Edinburgh New Town

    Completed in 1828, the statue of Henry Dundas, Viscount Melville, dominates St Andrew Square. In 1846, Frederick Douglass, author, statesman, anti-slavery campaigner, visited Edinburgh. He would have seen that statue - but was he aware of Dundas’ role in delaying abolition? Do residents or visitors of the city realise Dundas amendment to William Wilberforce’s act led to the enslavement of a further half a million men, women and children? And this is to say nothing of the huge compensation granted to slave owners across the UK, and particularly Edinburgh New Town.

  2. Philosopher John Gray: this moment is bigger than 1989

    Freddie Sayers asks eminent philosopher John Gray whether we are living through a moment of great change, akin to 1989, 1968, 1917, 1848…

    His answer? The changes across the world — and the retreat of the universalist ideal to reveal a world of competing civilizational zones, may be more significant for humankind than any of those previous moments.

    He touches on parallels between today’s woke movement and medieval millenarianism, his break with the Right, and how the world is becoming more ‘Game of Thrones’.

    Don’t miss this fascinating tour de force, steeped in knowledge and with a sweeping context, from one of the most important thinkers of the day.

  6. Identifying the Wedge and Wim Hof Method at Aspen Brain Lab

    In 2011 I had no idea that my meeting with Wim Hof was going to transform my life. I figured he would just be another charlatan guru on the make for his millions. Now, 7 years into my journey with the Wim Hof method I’ve begun to dissect some of the underlying principles for how our nervous system works. Where the WHM revolves around breathing and cold, you can use The Wedge to gain resilience to any environmental stimulus. By putting our intentions in between an environmental condition and a pre-programmed response you can flip your neurological script and do some pretty amazing things.

    In this video I talk about the underlying processes, but you’ll learn a lot more about it when my book "The Wedge" comes out in 2019.

    In the meanwhile, check out What Doesn’t Kill Us if you haven’t read it already. I read the audiobook myself: http://scottcarney.com/audible

  7. David Travis - The 7 deadly sins of user research - #NUX3 - @userfocus

    NUX3 - UX & Design Conference

    Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester ~ 10th Nov 2014 ~ 9.00am-5.30pm ~ http://nux3.co.uk/

    David Travis - The 7 deadly sins of user research

    Synopsis The job of the user researcher bears more than a passing resemblance to the job of an investigative journalist. Both are looking for buried treasure — stories that capture a particular individual’s goals, motivations and struggles while simultaneously resonating with a much larger audience. Both are trying to find the truth behind what people say when the truth is hidden in a Rashomon-like web of contradictory narratives from different people. And both are dealing with unreliable witnesses: people who do not understand why they are doing the things they are doing, or don’t want to tell you, or don’t tell you the whole truth.

    But many design teams continue to approach user research naively: for example, they ask people what they want (and believe the answers). Or they approach research projects with a hidden agenda: they cherry pick the findings and tell senior management what they want to hear. Or they allow just one person to become the repository of user research knowledge and fail to build a user-centred culture.

    In this presentation, I’ll talk about these and other common sins of user research. I’ve seen…

  8. Nick Currie aka Momus interviewed by Lucrecia Dalt

    Lucrecia tracks down the Scottish art-pop sensation, music scribe, and Japan enthusiast to create a map of his life in music.

    Momus is the artist name of Nick Currie, a Scot who lives in Osaka. Since the 1980s he’s released more than 30 LPs on labels like Creation, Cherry Red, and 4AD. In the 21st century he’s diversified into writing speculative fiction and making performance art. The Guardian has called him “the David Bowie of the art-pop underground”. For this month’s edition of Pli Lucrecia sits down with Momus to discuss his wide-ranging influences, from The Man Who Fell to Earth, to the radio plays of Rainer Werner Fassbinder and George Bataille’s cruel visions.

    Curated and engineered by Lucrecia Dalt Interview Lucrecia Dalt Producer Julian Brimmers
