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).

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.
The word curiosity actually means to take care.
Hone your hunches.
Ask [questions] as often as you advocate.

Scott Belsky The Middle of The Creative Process
It's something for us all to think about with our teams, is to really respect people's level of conviction, rather than always strive for consensus.
What is a fight without chaos? It's an attack. It's unfolding. It's spontaneous. You have to be proficient and have skill. You have to be able to respond in the moment.
If the void is this living space before distinct form is created, then chaos is the opportunity to create.
