The bosses led a fascinating game of Cards Against Humanity during our 6-7pm nerdy gaming session and set the mood for one of our most eclectic speaker line ups yet.

“Art, Craft, Beauty, Mingei and Malcolm Galdwell’s 10,000 hours” by James Herring
How skilled work, the creative process, the importance of beauty and intimacy with materials has evolved within this one persons practice. How learning through making can inform design, art, engineering, and a host of other fields while engendering a sense of satisfaction. James, a ceramic artist and past president of the Ceramic League of Miami, spun pottery on his wheel while giving the history of pottery and sharing his personal experiences.

“Why do passwords suck, and what you can do about it” by Alan Goldman
Alan is a computer programmer who thinks it is important for everyone to understand how security works as our lives become increasingly digital.  Alan shared lots of tips and tricks for taking control of your own virtual safety.

“Sex Underwater: A Slightly Inappropriate Musical Revue” by Gary Bremen
Sex has a purpose. Sex can be violent. Sex can be a solo experience. Sex can be kinky. The really cool, nerdy connection is that all of these are happening RIGHT NOW in the waters off Miami. Marine science educator Gary Bremen shared a humorous (and maybe even inspirational) look at everyone’s favorite “hobby,” with a soundtrack to match. Amazing!
