Serendipity (Fountain/Dip) Hybrid Pen Review
 
14:17
I show and talk about my Serendipity pen from Pensive Pens & show how easy it is to take apart for cleaning. Writing samples too. This pen is made in Australia - it is a collaborative effort between James Finniss and the Robert Oster Co. It provides lots of writing time with just one dip! It comes with a #6 broad JoWo nib. You can use any #6 nib in it. Great for letter writing, drawing and ink sampling/indexing! It is a smooth writer and it's incredible really how much you can write with one dip! Link to Pensive Pens: https://pensivepens.com.au/collections/pens/products/serendipity-hybrid-pen Link to another awesome review of this pen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5UuCQ1dBgBQ NOTE: I noticed that although the pen comes in randomly selected colors, you do have the option of contacting them at the time you order to see if you can get your preference of pen/nib colors/sizes - and it seems it depends upon availability.

Serendipity beyond stereotypes | Malvina Nissim | TEDxUniversityofGroningen
 
17:52
When we teach machines to perform human-like tasks, such as understanding language, we load them with human-based bias, as for example gender stereotypes. However, machines will also pick up on patterns hidden to humans, and might surprise us with a new perspective on our own knowledge. Malvina Nissim is a Lecturer in Computational Linguistics at the University of Groningen. Her field of research is concerned with developing computational models for a variety of linguistic phenomena. Within this field, she is particularly interested in how, and to what extent, machines can be taught to recognise and interpret specific aspects of language that rely on knowledge that goes well beyond the text itself. She is Lecturer of the Year 2016. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Structured Serendipity | Viraj Joshi | TEDxMITP
 
13:29
How does one really “get” ideas for anything new? All these creative outbursts, and things that you’d never think of, where do they come from? For something radical and groundbreaking, do inventors follow a structured process? Or are they merely figments of imagination of resourceful people brought to life in a jiffy? Viraj discusses the nature of the process of creation of smartly designed objects. Viraj an industrial designer and a storyteller at heart. He believes that people live for good stories to tell, and he would want to give the masses great stories to tell through the things he makes. He has received various features in media, and a number of awards for his work in industrial design.

Mary Little: "Intent and Serendipity" | Talks at Google
 
37:06
Shortly after graduating from the Royal College of Art in London, Mary Little’s work entered the permanent collections of the Vitra Design Museum in Basel and Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. It wasn’t until a few years later after establishing herself in London, that magazine cover stories describing her first collection of chairs, “....the quality of which make them appropriate as art objects...”, that Mary established her reputation as an accomplished artist. Throughout her career she has created public art works, private commissions and production design. She moved to San Francisco in 2001 to take up a teaching position at California College of the Arts (CCA). And now in Los Angeles her latest work has evolved to become increasingly abstract, exploring themes of landscape, pattern and repetition. Her work has been acquired by private collections in Europe and North America, as well as public collections including the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.

The social context of serendipity: Hallam Stevens at TEDxNTU
 
17:35
Discoveries and inventions are often attributed to chance or luck. Historical accounts tend to emphasize that scientists and inventors simply had the right brains in the right time and the right place. However, closer attention to the social and cultural contexts of discoveries and inventions can reveal how they are usually highly relevant and appropriate to the times and places that they occur. Albert Einstein's discovery of the special theory of relativity, Henri Becquerel's discovery of radioactivity, and the invention of Viagra were not merely lucky accidents -- they emerged because the individuals involved were searching for specific solutions to specific social, cultural, political, and technical problems. Hallam Stevens is a historian of science and technology whose research focuses on the intersection between the life sciences and information technology. This nexus is the subject of his monograph -- Life out of sequence: a data driven history of bioinformatics -- published by University of Chicago Press in November 2013. Hallam is currently completing two other books: a textbook on the history of biotechnology and an edited volume characterizing 'postgenomic' biology. His on-going research examines the impact of genomics and data-driven technologies on the production of biological knowledge in Asia.

WHERE GOOD IDEAS COME FROM by Steven Johnson
 
04:07
One of our most innovative, popular thinkers takes on-in exhilarating style-one of our key questions: Where do good ideas come from? With Where Good Ideas Come From, Steven Johnson pairs the insight of his bestselling Everything Bad Is Good for You and the dazzling erudition of The Ghost Map and The Invention of Air to address an urgent and universal question: What sparks the flash of brilliance? How does groundbreaking innovation happen? Answering in his infectious, culturally omnivorous style, using his fluency in fields from neurobiology to popular culture, Johnson provides the complete, exciting, and encouraging story of how we generate the ideas that push our careers, our lives, our society, and our culture forward. Beginning with Charles Darwin's first encounter with the teeming ecosystem of the coral reef and drawing connections to the intellectual hyperproductivity of modern megacities and to the instant success of YouTube, Johnson shows us that the question we need to ask is, What kind of environment fosters the development of good ideas? His answers are never less than revelatory, convincing, and inspiring as Johnson identifies the seven key principles to the genesis of such ideas, and traces them across time and disciplines. Most exhilarating is Johnson's conclusion that with today's tools and environment, radical innovation is extraordinarily accessible to those who know how to cultivate it. Where Good Ideas Come From is essential reading for anyone who wants to know how to come up with tomorrow's great ideas.

Dare to be vulnerable | Peter Sharp | TEDxPerth
 
15:11
Ever thought that train rides can be a little weird? That the distance between us is vastly greater than the physical distance between us? What if we liberated our desire for human connection by daring to be vulnerable? Peter Sharp is a “professional paradigm shifter”. Fiercely optimistic, he designs social experiments and global movements for peace that bend the rules of fear and challenge the modus operandi of community empowerment and flash mobs. Through his work leading The Liberators International, Peter creates spaces for the public to create their own threads of love, life and joy during the daily experience. One of his projects include the The World’s Biggest Eye Contact experiment which involved 100,000 participants from over 156 cities sharing a minute of eye contact with strangers. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

In a visionary talk, computer scientist Kai-Fu Lee details how the US and China are driving a deep learning revolution -- and shares a blueprint for how humans can thrive in the age of AI by harnessing compassion and creativity. "AI is serendipity," Lee says. "It is here to liberate us from routine jobs, and it is here to remind us what it is that makes us human."

Seeing the world as it isn't  | Daniel Simons | TEDxUIUC
 
07:23
Dan Simons explores why we see the world as it ISN'T. Daniel Simons is head of the Visual Cognition Laboratory at the University of Illinois. His research explores the ways in which our beliefs and intuitions about the workings of our own minds are often mistaken and why that matters. He is best known for his experiments revealing striking failures of perception and the limits of visual awareness. His research is exhibited in science museums worldwide and his writing has been published in many newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and The Chicago Tribune. He recently co-authored the book, "The Invisible Gorilla, and Other Ways Our Intuitions Deceive Us" (Crown, 2010). http://www.dansimons.com This talk was recorded at TEDxUIUC 2011 (02/19/11), which was organized at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign by a group of students led by Cristian Mitreanu. http://www.tedxuiuc.com About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

So much more than just a desk | Fraser Callaway & Oliver Ward | TEDxWellington
 
08:34
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. How two graphic designers decided to embrace the idea that their inexperience was their greatest asset... and designed something spectacular! Fraser Callaway and Oliver Ward aren’t your typical graphic designers. With a passion for experience design, problem solving, and environmental graphics these recent graduates take design off the screen any chance they get. Fraser and Oliver are driven by the current landscape of design. They believe that as the lines between traditional design disciplines blur, and the value of collaboration increases, there is a great opportunity to use design for positive change in society. Although they are fresh in the world of design they attribute their successes to embracing a multidisciplinary mindset, approaching projects with open minds and letting the problem at hand dictate the solution. Since graduating in October of last year the pair have used their design skills as a vehicle for other entrepreneurial adventures. They have established two companies and have recently launched a new product from their cosy studio space here in Wellington.

Elle Luna: Your Story Is Your Power | Chase Jarvis LIVE
 
01:33:54
Elle is an artist and author and just a genuinely amazing human. You’ve seen her design work on Medium, Uber, and many other recognizable brands as she came out the legendary design firm, IDEO. She was part of the 30 Days of Genius series on this podcast where we took a deep dive into finding our calling with the help of her breakthrough book, The Crossroads of Should And Must. I’ve personally found the idea of Should vs Must as a powerful tool that helps explore the tension between the expectations that parents, friends, and culture put on us versus who we are and what we know to be true. In this conversation, we get into a project I really love, the 100 day project and how powerful daily action can unlock the biggest ah ha moments. We are also joined by Susie Herrick, co-author of their new book Your Story Is Your Power; Free Your Feminine Voice, which really helps pull the curtain back of the importance of personal connection, relationships, and how powerful our own personal story is in everything we do. When you connect with your story and your voice, you can … as Elle calls it, live life in full color. In today's episode, * Many of us are imprisoned by the things we “should” be doing. Here are the three questions to ask yourself to break down your shoulds- Where did I first hear this? Are you true for me? Do I want to keep holding on to you? * Small actions taken regularly can create huge results. Join the100daychallenge to push yourself to publish something creative every day for 100 days. * We all have a feminine voice and we have power in that voice. The world will be a better, stronger, kinder place as we all empower our femininity, inclusivity, and community. Enjoy! -- ► Useful?

TED Fellow, Designer, and Entrepreneur: Tino Chow at TEDxPublicStreet
 
12:48
I am a designer, strategist, entrepreneur, and trouble maker. I do many things, but most of all I love to design, tell stories, and connect people. I was born in Singapore, raised in Hong Kong, and spent the last 7 years in Rhode Island. Leading up to joining Barnum, I've been meandering from adventure to adventure, where I served in the Singapore military, studied at Rhode Island School of Design, co-founded an annual conference called A Better World by Design, was selected as a TED Fellow, cycled across the United States, and started a design consultancy. While training as an industrial designer at RISD, I found myself becoming less and less interested in the outward appearance of products and more interested in understanding manufacturing processes and material engineering. This took me down the rabbit hole of questioning how products can change behaviors, which eventually led me to asking how companies and brands can positively influence culture.Combining my love for design, story telling, and the entrepreneurial way of thinking, I help clients come up with creative solutions. In my work, I navigate between ideas and implementation, believing that ideas on their own are meaningless unless they are well executed and sustainably designed.

The Unfortunate Appeal of the Heroic Idiot | David Hopkins | TEDxSMU
 
11:07
Benjamin Franklin was America's greatest scholar, philosopher, and scientist. And during one of the most crucial moments in our country's history, Franklin showed up in Paris wearing a goofy fur-cap on his head. In doing so, he may have set a terrible precedent for American scholars who continually play the fool in order to make the message more palatable. David Hopkins writes a little bit of everything and likes to make sense of crazy ideas. David has been a regular contributor to D Magazine and Smart Pop Books. He has also written for the Dallas Morning News, the Chicago Tribune, and the New York Observer, as well as comic books and graphic novels in a variety of genres. His essay "How a TV Sitcom Triggered the Downfall of Western Civilization" was a Medium.com editor's pick with over two million views. He now works as the content strategist for Imaginuity, a digital marketing agency in Dallas.

Creativity Training: Use Creativity as a Problem Solver
 
06:13
http://mediaeraart.blogspot.com/ Show Notes: When I painted I would start by putting down a layer where the colors did not work together. I tried to come up with as messy and as problematic a color combination as I could. Then, when I started the next layer on top of the first my creativity was not about making something but about solving problems. The problem solving mode of creativity is very effective. Sometimes it's better to be creative about solving problems than it is to be creative about making something new. Creativity is very good about solving problems do give it a problem to get it to kick into gear. This approach is also useful for taking you into directions you never would have gone otherwise. I will push you into new areas. You can use this creative approach with any medium, writing, acting, dance, Etc. Send your art out of bounds, then real it back in. It can create spontaneity, surprise and complexity in you art. It can add to the enjoyment. Being human we have the tendency to think along the same lines and repeat the same patterns. Look at things the same way. By making an artistic mess and then cleaning it up and making it work we push ourselves out of our usual way of looking at things and into unknown territory and into new regions of how we are making our art. The final result has some of the traces of the underling mess and has complexity that it wouldn't otherwise have. A problem artist have is, they want to make good art but there is built in pressure that we want to get over of wanting to make the art good from start to finish. By making bad art by making wrong art by making art that we know does not work, that is a great way to become comfortable working with art that is not fully formed, and learning to enjoy it. We don't' want to avoid bad art. We can create better art by working with messes. Invite randomness, invite serendipity.

Rising from the mud: Debra Barksdale at TEDxUNC
 
11:35
UNC Associate Professor Dr. Debra Barksdale researches stress and cardiovascular disease in Black Americans. Her talk "Rising from the Mud" described the African Sankofa bird, teaching us how to look back at our past: "san" to look, "ko" to seek and "fa" to take. Dr. Barksdale told the story of a tshirt given to her by a former teacher, which read in Latin, "Dux Femina Facti"- a woman was the leader- a phrase that has inspired Dr. Barsdale's life. She closed with the quote, "Even if you are from the mud, find the inspiration and the direction that you need from life. It's OK to look back, it's OK take. But ultimately give back to the next generation. Pull someone out of the mud. Sankofa."

Dear Book Writers #ukyaba

So this video is in letter form because it is written as a response to Andy Robb's love letter to book bloggers which you can read here: http://www.theguardian.com/childrens-books-site/2015/mar/06/uk-ya-book-blogger-awards-andy-robb If you want to find out more about the UK Young Adult Blogger Awards you can do so here: http://ukyabloggerawards.co.uk/ The winning blogs and bloggers were: Champion of Content - Serendipity Reviews - http://www.serendipityreviews.co.uk/ Blogger’s Blogger - The Pewter Wolf - http://thepewterwolf.blogspot.co.uk/ Blogger of the Year - WondrousReads - http://www.wondrousreads.com/ Champion Newcomer - TalesofYesterday - http://talesofyesterday.co.uk/ Champion Vlogger - Dark Readers - http://www.dark-readers.com/ Champion of Social Media - Winged Reviews - http://wingedreviews.com/ Champion Teen Blogger - The Mile Long Bookshelf - http://www.themilelongbookshelf.com/ Champion Adult Blogger - Sister Spooky - http://www.sisterspooky.co.uk/ Champion of Diversity - YAYeahYeah - http://www.yayeahyeah.com/ Champion of YA - QueenofContemporary - http://queenofcontemporary.com/ The script for this video is below. This is what I meant to say when I was fluffing all my lines. Dear Book Writers, Nobody needed to tell me about you lot. Let me explain. You have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I was brought up in the conventional over-run, almost-middle-class household, and weaned on words. When I try to scratch up my earliest memories my brow furrows and my mind shrugs, and offers up tales that could possibly have happen to me, or could have been adventures undertaken by the famous five. So you were always a part of my life, but that part which consisted of copperplate on title page, embossed letter on peeling spine, or, upon occasion, appearing badly-mispelt, in smudgy, cramped handwriting as I painstakingly lettered out the fictional exploits that were ‘wot i did over the summer’. To me you were nothing less than gods of literature, veritable wizards, whose powers ensnared dragons between endplates, defeated lords both dark and sinister, and even, upon occasion, complexly represented some sort of diversity within your characters. I definitely didn’t understand what exactly it was you did. I still don’t half the time. I read some of your works and I’m stunned. They make me want to snap all my pencils in two, tape up my laptop (but only metaphorically, I mean, that’s where the tumblr is) generally swear off any attempts at writing myself. Because how could I ever express futility like a crazy US Army Bombardier, how could /I/ explore all those little infinities, and what, I ask you, shape would our world have to be for me to dream up a reaper who, despite being on a disc, on the back of 4 elephants, on one massive turtle, flying through space, who has a soft spot for the more curious of kittens. As you might, watching this video as you are, just about be aware, the internet is a marvellous thing and Book Writers, through it you’ve surprised me. Through your tweets and vlogs and guest posts, I’ve realised you have limbs and faces beyond the previously-imagined, disembodied, furious-typing fingers. I’ve seen you squish your wit into 140 characters and even post shelfies; sometimes I’d swear you’re almost human. Here’s what I learned. Finally and fantastically: Book Writers are nuts. You’ve gifted us with your stories and because we enjoyed them, we felt the want, nay, need, to wax effervescent upon them. You’re praising us and rewarding us and heaping upon us all manner of lofty language - for things we couldn’t help but do and say. The idea that we could some how contain these responses? That we could just sit there calmly while Rue dies? Not squeals when our otp finally get their acts together? Or resist physically abusing books when they even think about leaving us on a cliffhanger? *shakes head* Of course we will go to the internet and cry for the sake of books - because, there’s no belittling it, you, you book writers, have driven us to it. So the UK YA Blogger Awards? You want to continue gifting us even further? You’re nuts Book Writers, but thank you all the same. Let a great communion of possibly-crazy people all gather in a bookshop basement and, we shall adore all book-things and book-people. Thank you for being the foundation this community is built upon. Best Wishes, SableCaught PS: Same time next year?

This is not a video camera: Chris Lunch at TEDxIHECS
 
17:42
Chris Lunch is a modern day alchemist in the field of international development. He believes in the power of combining technology with participation to shift awareness, galvanise communities and unleash hidden energy for positive individual and collective change. This is the topsy turvy world of "participatory video"; where the subjects of a film become the directors; where passive recipients of aid become active changemakers and where the social enterprise he co-founded, InsightShare, has chosen: 'Make mistakes', 'Lose control' and 'Have fun', as its core values. The title of his talk "This is not a video camera" takes inspiration from surrealist artist Rene Magritte's painting: Ceci n'est pas une pipe, as he asks us to re-look at what we think we know about this technology.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
