Hi! Join me at @Dublin_UX, where we'll be having a talk & discussion on #CreativeEmpathy 😃
We'll demystify #empathy as a #UX skill, cover key concepts, & discuss practical techniques that anyone can use.
I'm looking forward to it!
How can #love help us create sustainable #change? @ghadaalaa shares how she does it, both in the humanitarian sector and at home.
“We’re trying really to experience #coexistence in a practical way.”
Our jokes shape our culture, and our #culture shapes which behavior we accept.
In our upcoming #podcast episode, @ghadaalaa tells us how she's fighting for #genderequity by creating cultures of #love & psychological safety.
🎙️ The full episode will be ready soon!
May you be safe, healthy, happy, and experience abundant love! 💚🙏🏼🧘🏽
"Safety is impossible. Build protocols of protection instead." @dastillman
Tyson Yunkaporta's #protection protocols:
1. Care for yourself.
2. #Care for people around you.
Let's accept that errors happen, prevent what we can, & recover w/ #compassion
Designers & #UX people can facilitate empathy in their product teams. But they’re not the only ones!
Here’s my campfire stories talk on Creative #Empathy, now with (captioned) video.
Empathic #design ➞ compassionate products ➞ equitable world 🌍
If you're used to centralised networks like Facebook, you may be wondering why Mastodon and the Fediverse are spread across thousands of sites. Why not just have a single site where people sign up?
There are many important reasons, but maybe the most important is this:
Networks on single sites tend to be bought by bad people when they get popular 😠
It happened to Instagram (bought by Facebook), it happened to Whatsapp (bought by Facebook), it happened to YouTube (bought by Google). It can happen to ANYTHING built entirely around one site.
No matter how much you trust the people who run a site, when someone offers them billions of dollars they may just take the money.
Decentralised networks, where there is no central site, are much more resistant to buyouts.
No one owns the global email network, thousands of indie players like @Tutanota and @protonmail are able to offer alternatives, and if one provider behaves badly you can switch to a different provider.
My gender is not 'prefer not to say'. I very much like saying that I'm non-binary.
“There is a sense that… you are not [in] the driver’s seat, that you are a passive observer. You must begin to understand what it is in your life that you can and cannot drive, and let what you cannot go.”

💁🏽 Talking about it
🙋🏽 Helping someone else
🤷🏽 Anything else?

@Gargron Could we potentially rename Mastodon users to people?
Make it say “Discover People” is what I’m proposing. #mastode

What kind of world are you helping to create? Is it the world you want to live in yourself? That you want your children to grow up in?
If not, it might be time to start doing something else.
Good morning! What’s energizing you today? 💪🏼 ☀️ 🚀
