How does culture influence technology?
Many people have avatars or persona's they adopt on different platforms. There are terabytes of content that is made up of media from large organizations, friends to employee's. The trouble with having such a wide array of content is that it may appear there is no connection from one platform to the next. In this episode we will answer the question "how is the internet a representation of our culture and why is it that internet users have been able to make these changes happen?"
What does it take to be a good programmer and designer?
Season One was about UX Design, Entrepreneurship and Engineering. We had interviews with people like Chris Marciano, Miguel Coder and Greg Morawietz who are experts in their respective fields of UX Design, programming and security. This season finale episode we answer the question: It has been said that to become an expert at something it can take 10,000 hours of practice. What about when someone seeks to be a good designer and a good programmer, what would make this possible for them?
