Desirée García is a designer, editor, speaker, and tenacious gardener living in Austin, Texas. She designs for Automattic by day and edits for A List Apart at night. Her superpower is assembling IKEA furniture.
Dezzie is passionate about designing things that enable people to get on with their work and their lives. The design problems that no one wants to solve but have to get done. Life is too short for technology to be unusable or addictive.
Her work has spanned a quirky range of design problems, from financial transparency in the federal government, to some of the first platforms for enabling people to create with AI. She’s spoken at conferences like Front Conf, O’Reilly Design, and podcasts like The Hustle.
When she is working, Dezzie listens to house music. When she is not, you will find her listening to her daughters, her stomach, the dirt, or the mat.

Hi, I’m Dan MacKinlay.
I’m a statistician and musician from Australia. Musician should be clear. Statistician, though, what’s that? A statistician is the exact same thing as a data scientist or machine learning researcher with the differences that there are qualifications needed to be a statistician, and that we are snarkier.
These days I work across data analysis, music, generative design and machine learning, especially for time series. I’ve been based at various times at such locations as
- Zürich, Switzerland, where I did my MSc in statistics under Professors Sara van de Geer and Didier Sornette at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology
- Sydney, Australia, where I visualised data for the Powerhouse Museum under Seb Chan
- Bandung, Indonesia, where I worked on interactive music with Common Room and Gustaff Harriman Iskandar
Currently I am doing a PhD in statistics with Zdravko Botev at the University of New South Wales Sydney.
My current methods of interest are point process inference, compressive sensing, design grammars, sequential Monte Carlo methods, concatenative synthesis, differentiable learning, branching processes, Hilbert-space methods in high dimensional inference, stochastic differential equations and the application of all of these to economic modelling, reliability engineering and sick breakbeats.

I'm a B.Sc. student in Information Systems and Computer Engineering at Instituto Superior Técnico, in Lisbon. Currently working at Protocol Labs on decentralizing the web.
I believe in the transparency and openness of the web and when creating software so you can probably say I'm an Open Source advocate. You can check out my GitHub profile if you want to know more about what I'm doing right now.

Aram Zucker-Scharff is out to find a better narrative for the world. Over the past few years he has built himself an understanding of new media, marketing and advertising from the ground up. By starting in the midst of the radical alteration of how we consume media, it has become clear that new media requires new methods of understanding.
Aram firmly believes that you have to comprehend the spectrum of knowledge that supports professional techniques in order to create effective and unique innovation. This means knowing the basic elements of how to tell a brand's story as well as understanding the code and hardware behind the digital systems we use every day.
His approach is to understand where technology and narrative meet. Then we can work together to find the best way to apply that knowledge to strengthen the brand.

Hi, I’m Matt Maldre, the Senior Web Marketing Strategist at Tribune Content Agency (formerly called Tribune Media Services).
I’m L.T. Hanlon, a writer and photographer now living in Chicago. Before moving to the Windy City, I worked at newspapers in Arizona, Colorado, and Wyoming. These days, I’m branching out into independent publishing — including writing genre fiction for Amazon’s Kindle platform under several pseudonyms. In addition to publishing, I’m interested in stereoscopic photography, widescreen motion picture technology, midcentury modern architecture, typewriters, UFOs, and Fortean phenomena.
