I’m a designer with a curiosity for management. I like to experiment and to make things happen. I dive heart first into ideas (and chocolate cakes).

You're the one who shapes the kind of designer you want to be.
By saying no to some things, you're able to say yes to other things.
Jason Santa Maria Saying No
We create our social realities through the way we make meaning together, through the way we engage in conversation, the questions we ask.
We move in the direction of our conversations. So are we reinforcing what is or are we shifting those conversations?

Community Lightning Talks! Six Ottawans talking about community
What that comes down to when you're looking to build a community and evolve, is opportunity.
Community = Experience + Connection
You cannot be everything to everyone. If you're going to have a community, be specific about what it is that you want to do.
You don't have to inherit your community, you can build it.
Curiosity is more about helping you filling a patchwork of information about what you already know, it’s about pattern recognition, and connecting the dots between things. So when you’re trying to solve a problem, honing in on those little inklings where you have a hunch, and then building there and following the information, and asking questions that are actually building context around what you already know: that’s what curiosity is.
We are all born hardwired for curiosity. It’s one of the things that’s a drive in us, as a need like hunger or thirst, but the cool thing about curiosity is that there’s no intrinsic reward […] Curiosity is its own reward.
Maybe a fast win gets you somewhere, but if you did a slow win that allows for some different kinds of thinking, it will get you further in the long run.
The problem with being in an answer-culture is that it implies there is a right answer.
