    Valerie Dryden @outragedracoon - Radical Candor

    People are complicated and working together is hard. By acknowledging this and taking care of the needs of others and sharing context, we can avoid unnecessary conflict. Radical Candor is an approach to this that gives us techniques we can use to better communicate with others and in turn work more effectively together.

    Gary Fleming @garyfleming - Beyond Frameworks: Thinking and Tools

    Frameworks. Methodologies. Ceremonies. Manifestos. Some would say they represent the collective wisdom of our community. Others would say we often buy things wholesale to avoid having to engage our brains. The truth is messier.

    We will split ourselves into one or more groups, and using post-it notes everyone can suggest topics to discuss. We then vote on the topics, and discuss each one for 5 minutes.

    The topics are likely to be development/technology focused, but ther...

    Data physicalization

    Talks to include work by:
    - Uta Hinrichs,
    - Fearn Bishop,
    - Evan Morgan and
    - Bettina Nissen

    Data physicalization as a way to encode data in physical shapes, artifacts and experiences. We will introduce the opportunities and benefits of data physicalization for engaging audiences and making data accessible to non specialist and non technical audiences.
    This session will consist of a couple of lightning talks to introduce
    the topic and then a hands-on activity where we will make different
    physicalizations.
    Through this dynamic activity you will find out more
    about how to translate data into material forms and how materials may
    engage people with data in a different sensorial and experiential ways.

    P.S. Martina Pugliese of Mallzee will now be giving her talk at a later date.

    As usual, there will be space if you want to share anything. We're also always on the lookout for speakers, so let us know who you have in mind.

    Data Viz special

    7pm Talk One: "Interactive Visualizations for Data Exploration and Explanation" - Benjamin Bach

    This talk presents a set of interactive visualizations for data exploration and recent work in how to communicate insights through data-driven stories. Among examples for exploring dynamic networks (vistorian.net), I discuss data comics as a novel approach to communicate not only changes in temporal data but to weave narration, textual explanations, and data visualizations (datacomics.net). The questions raised by the talk are about effective ways to engage a larger audience in understanding, learning, and use of visualizations for exploration and communication. As visualizations are becoming more and more commonplace and familiar to people, we can see more and more aspects of our daily lives being potentially enriched with information presented visually. Eventually, I want to raise the question of which role novel technology such a...

  • Andreas M. Antonopoulos is a critically-acclaimed best-selling author, speaker, educator, and one of the world’s foremost bitcoin and open blockchain experts. Andreas makes complex subjects accessible and easy to understand. He is known for delivering electric talks that combine economics, psychology, technology, and game theory with current events, personal anecdote, and historical precedent—effortlessly transliterating the complex issues of blockchain technology out of the abstract and into the real world.
