Mathematics and physics, for me, are incredible tools. They’re really maps that let you understand the questions of the universe.

Mathematics and physics help you figure out why things happen the way they do. For me, tying this back to design is actually not so surprising because design is about asking why is it that humans work the way they do? In fact, mathematics, physics, design, art, language, metaphor, are all very similar. …

When building an online conference, it’s easy to think that the content of the talks is what matters most. But that’s not really true. Above all, a story needs to be crafted. A story with a rhythm, a sequence of topics, and a suite of emotions for the audience to experience. Yes, even online.
