A conversation with designers at Hopscotch: Creative Coding, and educators in tech at #CS4AllNYC and #ethicalCS about the ethical issues in the industry, in curriculum, and how those can be addressed to promote equity in computer science.
Very excited to have on the show James Z. B. Vanié, Shane Strassberg, and Hector Fabian Nandez, veterans from the U.S. military who decided to pursue careers in design after their service. The topic of military service is incredibly loaded as most of us liberal-leaning folx advocate for demilitarization and are contributors to the stigma against individuals who've served, when we should be addressing larger systems of colonization and capitalism. During this talk we'll hear about what these vets learned during their deployment and how they've translated that into insights about humanity and behavioral change.
Stupid Hackathon is the "one-day event where participants conceptualize and create projects that have no value whatsoever. The years of 2016-17 have become a span of time when "stupid has gone mainstream and become normalized, and satire is no longer valuable." Our politics and media now are so inundated with the stupid that we confuse what is really at stake. Do we agree that whatever's going on now is just a big stupid hackathon?

The horrors of online dating, something that's (unfortunately) near and dear to many New Yorkers' hearts.

Wing On Wo & Co. is New York Chinatown's oldest store that dates back to the 1890's. Now almost 130 years later, the store has been passed down five generations and has plenty of stories to tell. I sat down with Wing on Co's current owner Mei Lum to talk about how her founding of the The W.O.W Project, which holds events based out of the store, is trying to engage the community of residents in Chinatown in the shaping of the neighborhood's future. Mei said a lot of insightful things but one comment in particular, about how a place rich with cultural, historical, and economic history like Wing On Wo & Co. could function as a gathering place of for critique and dialogue, really stood out to me: "The great thing about The W.O.W Project and the space we hold our discussions in is that its a store -- there's nothing institutional attached to it."
Talking to Matthew Manos, founder of a verynice design studio, about how his volunteer efforts turned into a design studio that's able to keep its doors open by doing 50% pro-bono work, and how his new book about rethinking the reactive post-trauma nature of social enterprises will impact the future.
