SPOS #838 – Ashley Rose Mehlenbacher On Expertise (And Who Is Truly An Expert)

1 Comment

Welcome to episode #838 of Six Pixels of Separation.

Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation – Episode #838 – Host: Mitch Joel. It seems like everyone on LinkedIn (which is everyone who works) considers themself an expert in something (or everything). What is expertise? Who should we consider an expert? Is there one definition to rule them all? Ashley Rose Mehlenbacher is not just an associate professor and Canada Research Chair in Science, Health, and Technology Communication at the University of Waterloo, but is also the author of, On Expertise – Cultivating Character, Goodwill, and Practical Wisdom. Much of Ashley’s current research focuses on climate change communication, and she is a member of the University of Waterloo’s Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change (IC3) and the Water Institute. In addition to her duties at Waterloo, she is the General Co-Editor, with Carolyn R. Miller, at Genre Across Borders. Further, she served as a Member of the Board of Directors for the Association for the Rhetoric of Science, Technology, and Medicine (ARSTM) from 2019-2021 and as President of ARSTM from 2018-2019. Ashley’s research focuses on how communication practices shape the processes of science and also how diverse audiences engage with scientific and technical subjects through various communication strategies and modalities. Along with being the author of On Expertise, she also wrote Science Communication Online, and is co-editor of Emerging Genres in New Media Environments. Ashley has also been published in numerous journal articles and chapters. If you consider yourself an expert or eyeroll at those who self-describe themselves as one, this episode is for you. Enjoy the conversation…

SPOS #836 – Ashish Goel On Overcoming The Challenges Of Creative Work

1 Comment

Welcome to episode #836 of Six Pixels of Separation.

Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation – Episode #836 – Host: Mitch Joel. Ashish Goel has launched and run design divisions for multiple international companies. He is an entrepreneur, designer, former teaching fellow and a collaborator on the Stanford 2025 project. He is the former head of design at Zomato (India’s larger-scale Yelp!). He currently runs Boca, his sparkling water start-up, and advises some of India’s top technology companies on design and product management. His new book via the d.school, The Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford, is called Drawing on Courage – Risks Worth Taking and Stands Worth Making. Ashish believes that this topic is not-always-talked about, yet fundamental to doing cutting edge design work. According to Ashish, “You can do good-enough design-for-life work with its associated tools, but to do great design work you need grit.” His book is a practical, illustrated guide to overcoming the challenges of creative work, including where to start, how to give or get feedback, when to change direction, and how to stand up for what matters. Enjoy the conversation…

SPOS #835 – Kim Scott On Radical Candor And Ultimate Culture

1 Comment

Welcome to episode #835 of Six Pixels of Separation.

Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation – Episode #835 – Host: Mitch Joel. I have been hard at work trying to find a way to meet Kim Scott since she first published the book, Radical Candor. A special thanks to Dorie Clark and Alisa Cohn for inviting Kim to a dinner that we hosted during the last TED event in Vancouver. Along with Radical Candor, Kim is also the author of Just Work – How to Root Out Bias, Prejudice, and Bullying to Build a Kick-ass Culture of Inclusivity and co-founder of the companies, Just Work and Radical Candor. Kim was a CEO coach at Dropbox, Qualtrics, Twitter, and other tech companies. She was a member of the faculty at Apple University and before that led AdSense, YouTube, and DoubleClick teams at Google. Prior to that Kim managed a pediatric clinic in Kosovo and started a diamond-cutting factory in Moscow. She lives with her family in Silicon Valley, and loves to write fiction novels almost as much (maybe more) than business books. Enjoy the conversation…

How Data-Driven Journalism Illuminates Patterns of Injustice | Alison Killing | TED

1 Comment
From: tedtalksdirector
Duration: 12:44

A blank spot on a digital map can signal much more than a gap in data -- it can mean something is being intentionally hidden. Sharing the remarkable discovery of massive alleged detention camps in Xinjiang, China, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Alison Killing shows how governments can obscure human rights abuses by limiting journalist access on the ground -- and calls for more reliable open-source data (like satellite and social media imagery) to shine a light on the world's darkest places.
