Videos to watch
I love watching videos recordings of conference presentations, mostly the ones that don't deal so much with technical issues, but the ones that address culture and where the speakers share their experiences and stories. They are great to play in the background during certain types of work, and you get to see all the goodness without paying thousands of dollars in conference fees and traveling around the world. Last week I saw that both Webstock 2013 and XOXO Fest 2013 have most of their presentations online. Watch and learn.
And a short documentary on Karim Rashid, a highly prolific designer immediately recognizable by his pink suits as well as his use of bold and vivid colors and shapes. Check it.
