Animated by Jocie Juritz.

Intensity vs Consistency

Love Simon Sinek‘s words here, but man, Jocie Juritz’s animations made it so much more powerful. Mad respect for both.

Jon Setzen speaking at CreativeMornings

7.5 years ago, my dear friend Jon Setzen asked me if he could bring CreativeMornings to Los Angeles. I said yes and boy am I glad I did. He did such a fantastic job that it convinced me to extend trust to other hosts, that I didn’t know, to expand the CreativeMornings network. Jon ran and grew the chapter for over 5 years and now, he got to grace the stage, finally, and tell his story.

Jon is a remarkable human. The world is better because of him. Watch his talk.

Ueno

This video makes me want to apply for a job at Ueno.

What it Feels Like to Slide Downhill at 90 M.P.H.

This:

“If you start to get stiff, you start to get scared, it’s not going to work, the sled is going to break lose on you and you are going to crash. You have to embrace the speed instead of getting afraid of it!”

How Spiders Fly

A 1909 animation on how spiders take to the air is a charming dip into the history of science. Stop motion has come a LONG way!

Infento

A few weeks ago I was at a friend’s house in LA and he showed me Infento. This makes me want to be a kid! You can build various rides for your kids, with your kids. This is next level LEGO-kinda-play!

CreativeMornings Manifesto

The remarkable Debbie Millman reading the CreativeMornings manifesto, with the wonderful Canara Price signing. You can read it again, here.

Three Minutes

If your family reunion only lasts three minutes, what will you do? A unique Chinese New Year story shot on iPhone X by director Peter Chan.

Large-Scale Participatory Bubble Wall


This large-scale participatory Bubble Wall by Rintaro Hara is delightful!

The Era of the Algorithm

Thinking about the future of AI causes anxiety. We see its flaws and also its immense potential to improve our lives. But there is much work to be done. According to Josh Clark, a UX designer and design leader who helps organizations build products for what’s next, he shares four design principles that can improve how we build AI. The catch: it starts with us.

I highly recommend this CreativeMornings talk!

Barreleye Fish

What? A create with a transparent head? Please meet Barreleye Fish. You can see some fantastic images of this creature in Blue Planet 2. Unreal.

(Thank you Jodi!)

Patience is a Key in Negotiations

If you want to be an expert negotiator — or even a savvy game theorist — you must master one thing. Patience.

718 GIFs + 1 Song

My friend Mark clearly had too much time on his hands on a rainy Sunday in November of 2013 when he assembled 718 of his favorite GIFs into one highly entertaining video. This is the BEST!

Cheers

People from around the world say cheers in their respective native languages.

Offscreen Magazine

I have often held an Offscreen Magazine in my hands but I never knew anything about the person behind it. So lovely to put a face to it, in this case, Kai Brach.

Maria Popova Wisdom

I just remembered this brief talk my friend Maria Popova she gave during our 5 year CreativeMornings Birthday in 2013. So many gems!
