Talks to Watch

Brad Frost: Death to Bullshit

In a world where 10% of all the books written and photos taken came into existence only in the past year, how do we get back to what is truly important and keep ourselves focused? At our Pittsburgh event, Brad speaks on information, bullsh*t, craft, and the future.

Stop using 'creative' as a noun.

"Cure for HIV and cancer."

"Roads that provide energy just by being driven on them."

"Electric flying cars."


"Flux capacitor. Definitely a flux capacitor."

The future is... BRIGHT!

After delving into some of these talks, I think you'll agree. This April, we tackled the topic of "The Future," chosen by our San Francisco organizer, Erika Hall, and depicted by Frank Chimero in the most modern form of art, the GIF. The month was presented in partnership with the fantastic folks over at Squarespace.

In Pittsburgh, Brad Frost says we are suffering from "information overload"—a term coined in 1970. Today, we're dealing with some wicked problems, but, throughout the talks, one thing rang true: Artists and designers, engineers and programmers, people who make things, are the creators of that future and have the ability to influence it for the better.

Get a glimpse of what the future may bring by watching April's talks  here.
