RSVPed Attending The Economic Impacts of COVID-19 on the Healthcare Industry: A Panel Discussion

Sponsored by the Healthcare Affinity & Johns Hopkins Carey Business School

At a time when the nation is looking to the healthcare industry for leadership and service, the pandemic has led to a significant impact on the U.S. healthcare job market. Historically, the healthcare industry has been relatively immune from recessions. However, as services have been cut, income streams have been lost. Join us as our panel of speakers discuss the economic impacts of the pandemic on the healthcare industry. This event will be presented on Zoom.

RSVPed Attending Black Every Day: A Focus on Policy and Policing

Sponsored by the Hopkins in Law Affinity

Tune in on Tuesday, August 25 at Noon EDT.

As the United States examines the ways in which existing criminal justice and policing policies at the local, state, and federal levels affect Black Americans and communities of color, many of us are left wondering about the role of our legislators. Following nearly a week of civil unrest following the death of George Floyd, Maryland Senate Judicial Proceedings Chairman William C. Smith, Jr. initiated legislation to address officer training, use of force, militarization, prosecutorial intervention, liability caps, the disclosure of personnel records, and The Law Enforcement Officers Bill of Rights. During this hour, engage with our panelists as they discuss Sen. Smith’s proposed legislation and the impact of George Floyd’s death as it relates to police, policy, and politics in Maryland and beyond.

RSVPed Attending How Legal Decisions and Policy Making Impact Reproductive Rights in 2020 and Beyond: A Panel Discussion

Sponsored by the Hopkins Alumni in Law, Women of Hopkins, & Healthcare Affinities

Polls show that the majority of Americans believe that birth control is a basic part of women’s health care and an important public investment. Young people have more opportunities to be mentally and physically healthy when they have control over when and under what circumstances they get pregnant and have a child. Join our panel of experts for a discussion about birth control access, federal and state policies, and case law. This panel will be presented on Zoom.

RSVPed Attending Hey Pressto! Conference 2020

A WordPress and ClassicPress conference which happens only on Twitter

Hello, we are Hey Pressto! Hey Pressto! is a ClassicPress and WordPress conference which happens only on Twitter.

#HeyPresstoConf2020 will happen on Thursday September 24, see more details about the schedule.

What does that mean? Well, it’s like a conference but presentations are a series of 15 Tweets, one per minute with the conference hashtag, in a scheduled time slot. You can add images, gifs, videos, links to your tweets to add more depth. The conference hashtag, numbering the tweets in a presentation, and threading them, all help the audience follow along. People viewing a presentation can interact by liking the tweets, retweeting them and commenting on the presentation, which builds engagement, creates question and answer threads, starts discussion and stimulates ideas. We will turn all presentations into moments so that they will remain easy to follow for as long as the presenters wish to keep their tweets available.

RSVPed Attending Design for Cognitive Bias Launch Party!

Come celebrate the launch of my new book, Design for Cognitive Bias. Each ticket includes the price of a copy of the book!

About this Event

Our users have biases and so do we. My new book, Design for Cognitive Bias, explores how design and content strategy can help keep them at bay (or use them for good). Let's celebrate the launch!

  • We'll start with a book reading
  • Then I'll chat with Tiny MBA author Alex Hillman about the book
  • Then we'll do audience Q&A
  • Then we'll do something called an idea exchange. (I'll explain later but I promise it'll be fun!)

Like I said, price of admission includes a digital copy of the book. YOU get a book! And YOU get a book! And YOU get a book! (You get the idea).

Special thanks to Indy Hall for virtually hosting this event!

I'm really looking forward to this. It's been a long road to get here and I hope you'll celebrate with me! :)

My remarkable friend David Dylan Thomas has a a new book entitled Design for Cognitive Bias coming out on August 25th from A Book Apart. Knowing his background and abilities, it will be a must-read for any web designer or developer.

We humans are messy, illogical creatures who like to imagine we’re in control—but we blithely let our biases lead us astray. In Design for Cognitive Bias, David Dylan Thomas lays bare the irrational forces that shape our everyday decisions and, inevitably, inform the experiences we craft. Once we grasp the logic powering these forces, we stand a fighting chance of confronting them, tempering them, and even harnessing them for good. Come along on a whirlwind tour of the cognitive biases that encroach on our lives and our work, and learn to start designing more consciously.

 If you’re free on Friday, August 28th there’s also a launch party for the book! The price of admission also includes a discounted copy of the e-book. RSVP now.

I’m hoping I can talk him into doing a talk or presentation for my friends in the IndieWeb community. He’s a great and thoughtful person and speaker, so I expect to see him around the design and development talk circuit for a lot of the coming year. If you have a conference coming up, I recommend you book him now before he’s over-scheduled.

RSVPed Attending IndieAuth 1.1 Identity Protocol Standards Session

August 8, 2020 at 09:30AM - August 8, 2020 at 11:30AM

IndieAuth is the most implemented decentralized identity protocol, built on top of OAuth 2.0.

This popup IndieWebCamp session will focus on discussions to iterate and evolve the IndieAuth protocol.

Who Should Attend?

Anyone interested in IndieAuth is welcome! Specifically if you've built any IndieAuth clients or servers, we want your input!

Suggested Reading

If you're not already familiar with the IndieAuth spec, please give it a read. We will be starting this session with the assumption that people are familiar with the basics of the IndieAuth protocol.

Since IndieAuth is built on top of OAuth 2.0, it may be helpful to have some knowledge of OAuth 2.0 and its extensions, although this is not required reading.

One of the things driving this session is the recent adoption of the OAuth 2.1 draft by the OAuth Working Group. OAuth 2.1 incorporates the best practices of OAuth 2.0 and extensions into a new draft. We would like to consider upgrading IndieAuth to follow these best practices as well. You can find a summary of the changes in OAuth 2.1 in this blog post and in this video.

Rough Agenda

We've collected topics to discuss in the IndieAuth 1.1 Milestone on GitHub.
