Metaphors Are Similes. Similes Are Like Metaphors., by Coraline Ada Ehmke

Talk level: beginner

Language matters more than you think. And the more you think, the more you need language. This talk explores the connections between language and problem solving, how the metaphors that we use can expand or constrain our thinking, and how it all relates to our identities as software developers and as human beings. Along the way we’ll learn about linguistics, category theory, Russian colors, gigantic bridges in France, and how to pronounce the word “lacuna”. And you’ll definitely have some things to think about. Hopefully, in new ways.

Decentralization: The Path To Our Collective Future, by Jamie Klinger

Talk level: beginner

Mind map: https://metamaps.cc/maps/3315 The organizational structure of today’s society is exceedingly centralized and hierarchical. In this presentation, we will explore that web of control and how the decentralized open source movement is poised to overtake it. We will be discussing several innovative projects including Holochain and one that I have founded built in Ruby on Rails called JoatU.
