Ethan Marcotte
The World-Wide Work

@beep's urgent talk concerning the web as an agent of power, its potential to do harm, the changing nature of our work, and the need for hope.—@naconf

This is the brilliant talk Ethan gave at the wonderful New Adventures Conference, 23/1/2019. A strong message which resonated with me - I cannot recommend it enough! Do make the time to watch it! And check out the coverage page for more. Or read my personal notes ;)

This might be the best conference talk I’ve ever seen. It’s certainly the most important.—@adactio
