"mary mary robinson" Discussed on The Limit Does Not Exist

"Kate I think my favorite part of this conversation was when Keith shared how much input he and his co founder sought from from both blind users and their friends and family who provide really important assistance to them when they were just getting started in designing the way band they went right to the true experts of what they were building so it reminds me of this twitter threat. I came across a couple of months ago. Will Link to it in the show. Notes is from Mary Mary Robinson where she talks about optimizing and gender and she starts with a couple of examples from NASA Where there's this blue bar on the floor Up in I think it's the International Space Station and the guy in the picture can stand with his feet kind of tucked under the bar which helps him stay stabilized and connected and then he can do his work right. Woman in the picture can't fit her feet under the bark because she's not tall enough so she's sort of like having to hold on and float in space and also do her work Because this the whole thing was designed originally for male astronauts it's optimized for the men and it doesn't mean that women can't be astronauts obviously but it means that they are having to accommodate. You know a design that doesn't quite fit them and she makes us really kind of connection between lean this design choice for NASA and. She's talking about her industry. which is papa cheering and some design choices that were made in the earliest days of the muppets? Because Jim Henson was six foot three and I didn't realize he was that tie you either. And so they made all of the sets and all of the kind of design choices or on the muppets for tall puppeteers which was great for him but that meant that they had to hire other tall puppeteers. And you can imagine how many women puppeteers are six foot three or even you know over six feet tall not that many and so that means that when they they were trying to make a conscious effort to get more female puppeteers on on the team that they all have to wear these giant platforms sneakers to to be tall enough to get their pump it in a frame which affects their mobility. It affects their performance again. They're able to do it but they have to make these accommodations so is just. It's really interesting to think about kind of the difference between designing for inclusivity and really considering the wide range of people who might want to interact with your product or your experience or or whatever that is I sort of designing and making these default choices which then requires other people to accommodate those things in ways that affect their ability to participate. Paid design is so powerful right like there's just so many levels of it and what happens in situations like that is all of a sudden things are just difficult difficult for some people because quote unquote. That's the way they've always been more. That's the way they are not only. Is it important for designed to be as inclusive as possible from the GECKO but to continue to change adapt right you know Christina. Interestingly on the topic of NASA NASA Goddard Put out this really really cool video on instagram. On World Sight Day with the caption. Have you ever touched the universe and the videos essentially this NASA employees who is experiencing one of the NASA Braille books and. I had no idea that NASA even makes these. What's a Braille Book? Yes so essentially. You can touch the different planets based on the Hubble images of those planets and so. What's so cool about this? This video is you see this woman just feeling the different curves and You know like rises and falls the actual shape of this image taken of this planet and she's just experiencing so much joy she's just like oh my gosh because she this particular killer NASA employees lost her sight a bit later in life and so she talks about how it just takes her back to that beginning curiosity that she had had in school when she was first learning about space. It's amazing and it's just a really beautiful video that leads you to think what are other opportunities right. Take them the world in different ways in ways that people who are visually impaired or hearing impaired or don't have the same sense ability as as so many others. How can we continue to include them? So we'll go ahead and linked to this video too because it's it's just a great one to watch that's awesome. You Know I. I also love Christina. When Keith talked about this phrase he used was his prestige loss when he switched from engineering into fashion and how he had got to assure his grandmother doing even when he did it eight? And I really really relate to this. I know I'm not alone in relating to this right so so often we find ourselves reassuring others when we're still figuring out what we're doing and it takes so much courage and trust to do that following what feels feels Turkey. You often means getting off the obvious path and the clear. Cut Timeline that your classmates or your colleagues might beyond that really connected with me. It doesn't mean that you're behind it just means you're taking a different route and at some point it will click and you'll see all of those dots connect but it. It requires so much as you said courage to believe that there is a there there so we want to throw this to you guys. How how do you figure out your next step before? You're looking back. and seeing. How the dots of connective when? It's still unclear Christine in one of the things that Keith had a really good sense of at each stop on his path was what he liked about what he was doing. And what he wanted more of totally. So take your current field of study or your your job or your field of work and try writing to lists what I love about it. And what's missing. I think this can be such a powerful exercise. This is you know because it really puts your values and your interests into focus. I think one of the things I've really gotten from doing this show is that I used to think that if I didn't like a job then I had to move onto something totally different rather than saying. Oh no I just don't like these things about it. Here's what I do like about it. It right and sometimes what you do about. It is just that you get a paycheck and that is the case. Then you can look at all the things you don't like about it and think. Well what are the antidotes to that right so I would say. Don't worry about how you can do more of what's missing yet. Just start to get a sense of your preferences absolutely and then let us know how it goes. We love hearing your updates and questions and even just those moments of crisis you can share them with a holy re-glue you can reach us. Are here for you.

"Awards for doing certain things like the person who got the most likes on his comments would get an award you could create leaderboards so that whatever action you're encouraging people to take their is a leaderboard of people who've taken it the most and encourage everybody to both appreciate the people who are on there but also try to be there especially if you wipe it out each month there's a shot for everyone to get on that list i missed those little homegrown tools and one of the problems with using an off the shelf piece of software like facebook that's so restrictive is you just can't do that now the funniest fish of the feedback we got on our app is someone contacted i'll say it's not like facebook that's a problem i since we are talking about how the story of how you got to one hundred thousand members let's talk a little bit more about how you got members you said it was tinder then you did that whole tinder thing where you guys all pretended to be what was her name mary mary robinson and that helped you guys get a lot of promotion when somebody leaves the city you encourage them in able them to create a new group in whatever city there in so that helps a lot it feels like when somebody and correct me if i'm wrong about this but it feels like when someone uses your app there's an incentive to get one or two friends of theirs to come in there too am i wrong about that no there's no incentive but we looked at you actively incentivize them feels warmer if a friend of yours is also trying it with you.
