A list of websites, podcasts, videos, conferences, resources and some miscellany that helps me keep creatively juiced.
Curators / Creators / Community Leaders
Visualizing.org // "A community of creative people making sense of complex issues through data and design." Some good, some great, some mediocre, this site is full of user-generated visualizations for inspiration or critique...
Podcasts! Podcasts! Podcasts!
Data Stories // with Enrico Bertini and Moritz Stefaner
Reply All // A [funny, facinating, relevant] show about the Internet
99% Invisible // "A tiny radio show about design" hosted by Roman Mars
Intelligence² US // Oxford-style debates live from New York City
This American Life // Storytelling at it's finest
Radio Lab // A must-listen for designers is their episode on colour
The New Disruptors // Informative and inspirational interviews with creators about connecting with audiences.
You Are Listening To // Perfect for ambient while-you-work noise, this site mixes music with live police radio broadcasts from different cities in North America. My favourite is out of Montreal for that irresistible French factor. Yup, you just have to check it out.
Designers: Watch // A list of the "Must-See Documentaries for Designers & Artists" with links to where you can watch them.
I could really post all of the talks from Open Vis Conf 2014 here. But luckily Beaucoup has already done that somewhere else.
Suggestions from great past experiences.
Who Gives The Best Info? A Short History Of Information Design // An important article by Paula Scher
The Art of Resilience the Resilience of Art // "A paper on the contribution of art and culture to urban resilience and livability"
Speculative Everything // "design as a means of speculating about how things could be—to imagine possible futures."
Model View Culture // an independent publication of original work covering technology, culture and diversity.
