WIAD 2016: Ann Arbor

Wayyy back in February, I gave a lightning talk at World Information Architecture Day (WIAD) in Ann Arbor. The theme this year was "Information Everywhere, Architecture Everywhere," and I spoke about the beauty of non-expertise when approaching challenges through the lens of my experience as a Peace Corps volunteer in Nicaragua.

It was terrifying. One of my personal goals this past year has been to push myself to do things that scare me (ahem, public speaking), so standing in front of a room full of people I admire and letting words come out of my mouth was incredibly tough. I'm so, so, so glad I did it.

Anyway, apparently the video is online! Who knew? In the spirit of pushing through discomfort, I wanted to share it. You can watch the video, along with the subsequent Q&A, here.
