Wilson Miner – When We Build

Wilson Miner‘s talk is about the power in design, interface and simplicity. He realizes that a website is not just a website.

I discovered this talk at a perfect time in my computing career. From I.T. support and development, to animation and visual effects…   and now I am getting a little deeper into web development. I’m happy to see that the current world of web development is quite different from the world I turned my back on during the late 90s.

One of my favorite quotes that Wilson presents in this talk is from Alistair Smith.

“At times of change, the learners are the ones who will inherit the world, while the knowers will be beautifully prepared for a world which no longer exists.”

Thank you Wilson Miner.  Your talk was a quick n cheap therapy session that I needed to experience.


  1. That quote from Alistair Smith sounds strikingly similar to “It is not the strongest [smartest, most knowledgable] of the species that survives, but the one most responsive to change.” (possibly a Darwin quote, but I’ve never read Origin of Species)

    Very similar, though one feels a bit more… hmmm… “poetic” than the other. 😉
