Ethan's talk is now available

We're excited to share Ethan Marcotte'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.

31st May, 2019

Ethan had been writing about the changing nature of our work and the threats imposed by the web, so we tasked him with speaking about these issues rather than his signature responsive design or systems, and he jumped at the opportunity. The end result was this extraordinary keynote.

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