  1. How Designers Can Get More Comfortable with Data | “One day soon, a client with a core product that relies on innovative AI software will come knocking on your studio door. Or you may be brought in on the ground floor of an early-stage start-up that believes it has killer data. Maybe you will join a mature start-up that is seeking to extract more nuance and value from their large amount of existing data. Or you might work with a behemoth that needs to leverage data to rediscover a competitive edge. Whatever the circumstances, they will need your help in figuring out how users can interact with their data in a meaningful way. How do you determine what’s just noise versus what’s essential, what to work on and get out the door first?”
  2. HOW TO MAKE A ONE-PAGE ZINE | “Many people believe print is dead. Here at Shwood we beg to differ as we are always creating new physical things with our hands, and printed matter is no different. Creating a zine is an awesome way to express yourself and showcase your artistic talents. No matter what your artistic capabilities are, you too can publish your work and be in print! This is a quick guide on how to make a zine with one sheet of 8.5 by 11 paper.”
  3. Design Thinking vs. Visual Thinking | “Now, most people who work in business strategy, innovation, or problem-solving can tell you that design thinking and visual thinking are not the same, but not everyone can easily articulate the difference.”
  4. The impossibility of stealing a 3,000-year-old head with a video game controller | “In Berlin’s Neues Museum, there sits a 3,000-year-old bust of Queen Nefertiti. The priceless artifact is under glass, kept safe by alarms, and watched by security guards. Last year, it was stolen. But there was no daring heist, no Mission Impossible-esque dangling from the ceiling — the bust never moved from its place in the museum.”
  5. What Google Learned From Its Quest to Build the Perfect Team | “New research reveals surprising truths about why some work groups thrive and others falter.”
  6. The 5 Types of Personal Projects (And How You Can Justify Pursuing Them) | “Side projects aren’t a waste of time, as long as you undertake the right ones.”
  7. How Walking Fosters Creativity | “Stanford Researchers Confirm What Philosophers and Writers Have Always Known.”
  8. Which Type of Exercise Is Best for the Brain? | “Some forms of exercise may be much more effective than others at bulking up the brain, according to a remarkable new study in rats. For the first time, scientists compared head-to-head the neurological impacts of different types of exercise: running, weight training and high-intensity interval training. The surprising results suggest that going hard may not be the best option for long-term brain health.”
  9. The macabre truth of gun control in the US is that toddlers kill more people than terrorists do | “Last week, a Florida gun rights activist was shot in the back by her four-year-old son. How much longer will we keep participating in the collective lie that deadly weapons keep us safe?”
